LGBTQ Needs Assessment

Flag

Our state has become a leader in collecting data to measure health disparities impacting the overall wellness of its LGBTQ population. Since 2015, a growing network of organizations has helped to collect data about the health needs and barriers to care experienced by thousands of LGBTQ Pennsylvanians.

Beginning March 9, this coalition will be collecting data for the 2020 PA LGBTQ Needs Assessment. For the first time, there is a Spanish language version of the assessment (https://​www​.surveygizmo​.com/​s​3​/​5​4​3​6​2​4​5​/​2​0​2​0​-​P​A​-​L​G​B​T​Q​-​N​e​e​d​s​-​A​s​s​e​s​s​m​e​n​t​-​e​s​p​a​n​ola). Special efforts are being made to encourage participation from underrepresented subpopulations including LGBTQ youth, people of color, members of rural communities, and transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. As we seek to capture a greater diversity of perspectives, we hope to promote a better understanding of the unique experiences of members throughout the LGBTQ community and throughout the state.

Every person who partakes in the survey will be helping Pennsylvania’s department of health learn more about how to promote the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ people. The data collected will fuel community-based programs designed to close gaps in service and address health disparities. Together, we will build a stronger, healthier community.

If you identify as LGBTQ and live in Pennsylvania, please take the time to raise your voice for LGBTQ health and be entered in a raffle to win a gift card now at https://​www​.surveygizmo​.com/​s​3​/​5​3​7​0​6​0​1​/​2​0​2​0​-​P​A​-​L​G​B​T​Q​-​N​e​e​d​s​-​A​s​s​e​s​s​m​e​n​t​-​E​n​g​l​ish

Reaching out to the Latino Community

One of my best memories about LFHS is when they held the first Latino Health Fair. Reaching to the Latino community was also in their agenda. Always being a step ahead for the sake and health of this community.
