Several studies conducted by OutCare Health show that healthcare professionals, including primary care doctors, dementia care specialists, residents, and students across a variety of fields, lack proper LGBTQ+ patient education, training, exposure, and preparedness. This is largely because the healthcare needs of LGBTQ+ individuals are seldom addressed in medical school curricula in the U.S.

This insufficient knowledge can lead to discrimination from medical personnel and/or subsequent misdiagnosis of patients. In this OutTalk, join us for a discussion with community leaders and healthcare professionals as they talk about the future of medical education and address the need for LGBTQ+ focused curricula for the next generation of providers.

Panelists include:

• Craig W. Johnson (he/him), Group Manager of Minority Affairs Section, American Medical Association

• Fae Nova Kronman, MS (they/them), Executive Director, Medical Student Pride Alliance

• Alison Pittman, PhD, MSN, CPN, RN, CNE (she/her), Clinical Assistant Professor at the Texas A&M College of Nursing

• John Sovec, LMFT (he/him), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Author, and OutTalk Moderator
