ROCKFORD — PFLAG Rockford will be hosting a discussion on LGBTQ healthcare at the UIC College of Medicine Partner’s Pavilion in Rockford on Monday, Feb. 25.
From the Facebook event:
We welcome you to a panel discussion about LGBTQ+ healthcare so we can make this better for everyone involved! The LGBTQ+ & Allies group at UIC aims to improve LGBTQ+ medical education and cultural competency. This panel will help us determine what those gaps currently are and how we can improve them in order to better LGBTQ+ healthcare. The panel will consist of members from the LGBTQ+ community and medical professionals. We have extended surveys to those who will be attending in order to gather 2-3 “set” questions that will be asked; 2-3 from the LGBTQ+ community and 2-3 from medical students. This will ensure that participants stay engaged and the main questions get answered. After these “set” questions are answered, we will open it up to the floor for questions and open discussion. There will be a moderator present, who will be helping to guide the discussion. There will be food for those who attend. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb 18th so we can ensure everyone has enough to eat.
This event is FREE
Dinner at 6:15
Panel begins at 6:30
The pavilion is at 1601 Parkview Ave. in Rockford.
