ELEVATING VOICES, EMBRACING IDENTITIES: SUPPORTING THE PUBLIC HEALTH OF BLACK LGBTQ+ COMMUNITIES IN THE TRADITION OF MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

Friday, February 3, 2023, Noon to 1 p.m. (Teams link below)

Presented by: Steve Arrington, Executive Director, Akron Aids Collaborative, Andrew Snyder, BSN, MPH, Kent State College of Public Health and LePriya White

This presentation aims to examine the ongoing public health needs of Black LGBTQ+ communities and the ways in which these needs intersect with issues of racial and social justice. Through a review of recent survey data from the Greater Akron LGBTQ+ Community Needs Assessment, we will explore the unique challenges and disparities faced by Black LGBTQ+ individuals in accessing quality healthcare and support.

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and his commitment to equality and justice for all, this presentation will discuss the importance of inclusive, culturally sensitive healthcare for Black LGBTQ+ communities. By elevating the voices and experiences of this community, we can work towards creating more inclusive and equitable healthcare systems that better serve the needs of Black LGBTQ+ individuals. Ultimately, this presentation will provide a call to action for all individuals and institutions to actively support and advocate for the public health of Black LGBTQ+ communities.
