AACOM Webinar

On June 17, 2024, Dr. Holt had the honor of presenting a zoom webinar for PRIDE month. The American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) hosted the session. This session dove into how to make the healthcare setting a safe and welcoming environment for LGBTQ+ patients, including the impact of the waiting room, intake forms, and patient interactions. In addition to discussing what LGBTQ+ patients are at higher risk for, we discussed how to start conversations on sensitive topics, such as sexual health, trans health, coming out, and LGBTQ+ suicide risks. 

Attendees included medical students, resident physicians, attending physicians, faculty, staff, other healthcare professionals, and community members.

A robust Q & A session completed the talk.
