We are honored to present a 4-part virtual learning series titled, "What LGBTQIA2S+ BIPOC want Prevention Professionals to Know?" as a collaboration between the Central East, National American Indian & Alaska Natives, and National Hispanic and Latino PTTCs.
Together, we will connect you with subject matter experts from various diverse cultural backgrounds. This will provide a perspective of what LGBTQIA2S+ BIPOC individuals would like Prevention Professionals to know when serving the population.
Please join us for a roundtable discussion. Participants will have an opportunity to learn from subject matter experts, as well individuals whom identify as BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA2S+. Cultural aspects and specifics of each culture represented in the series will be discussed, as well as what historical data are behind the challenges faced by each group.
Participants will also learn about the specific risk and protective factors, difficulties the communities are experiencing with current Behavioral Health Systems, how to enhance the strengths of each system to increase engagement and retention, as well as many other critical topics. By the end of the series, participants will leave with knowledge and tangible actions to help make a difference, as an important part of our role as prevention professionals. What can we do to educate ourselves and serve the population better and with respect and humility?
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions for our presenters during the live event.
