This is a 1-day event working towards the primary goal of the AETCs, which is to improve the treatment, management, diagnosis, and counseling for persons living with HIV by:

  •  Removing barriers to primary care services to ensure equitable access to care for historically under-served minority populations, in this case persons who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and/or Queer (LGBTQ).

  • Reducing HIV-related morbidity and mortality by enhancing the clinical skills of providers to prevent, screen and treat person who are at risk for or living with HIV/AIDS who identify as LGBTQ through customized, multi-disciplinary training, and

  • Working with multidisciplinary care teams in hospitals, community-based organizations, health departments, mental health and addiction treatment facilities and other healthcare organizations such as those funded through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program or serving historically under-served minority populations to assure culturally appropriate quality HIV prevention and treatment services.

Target audience: physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, licensed nurses, social workers, and all interested health professionals that impact the care of the LGBTQ patients are invited.
