LGBTQ+ Cancer Talk flyerDuke Cancer Institute COEE is hosting a webinar "Moving the Conversation Forward: LGBTQ+ Cancer Care Inclusion" as part of its Conversations with Our Community series on April 5 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

In 2020, The National LGBT Cancer Network launched OUT: The National Cancer Survey, one of the largest-ever studies of LGBTQI+ people with cancer. In 2021 the first sub-report was launched with a webinar presenting key findings from transgender and gender non-conforming individuals.

A viewing of this presentation will be followed by a panel discussion — moderated by Shaun Jones
(graduate student, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health) and Alex Cordova (executive director
Lila LGBTQ Inc.) — on the barriers faced by sexual & gender minorities in accessing cancer care and why these barriers exist.

"We will be identifying concrete tools to incorporate into your organization, healthcare center, or practice to provide affirming, informed, and empowering  healthcare for the LGBTQ+ community," say organizers.

The webinar is presented in partnership with the Durham County Public Health Department, El Centro Hispano, and the National LGBT Cancer Network. Simultaneous interpretation in Spanish will be available.
