2017 Ohio LGBTQ Health Provider Guide

directory cover 1

This guide was created to connect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning community members with health and social service providers who are committed to providing LGBTQ-centered care. Providers listed are those that answered “Yes” to at least one of the following questions, in response to an LGBTQ Patient Care survey conducted in the latter half of 2016:

Has had LGBTQ-specific cultural competency training.
Have you received any LGBTQ-specific competency training?

Uses LGBTQ-inclusive language on forms and paperwork.
Does your paperwork provide space for patients to indicate their relationship status as partnered, differentiate between their sex and gender, and indicate preferred name and pronouns?

Provides LGBTQ-specific education materials.
Does your office have any visible or available educational/supportive materials printed specifically for the LGBTQ community?

Provides Trans-specific services.
Do you provide trans-specific services?


Tips for using this guide:
Some providers, particularly specialists, require referrals in order to be seen. In the event you are attempting to make an appointment without a referral, it may be helpful to explain that you identified the provider through the 2017 Ohio LGBTQ Health Provider Guide. This guide is to be used as a reference only, Equitas Health makes no assurances about any providers listed. All information is based on self-reported information gathered by each individual provider.

If you would like to be included in future versions of the guide, please fill out this survey. If you have any questions about the guide, please contact Ramona Peel at ramonapeel@equitashealth.com.

2016 Transforming Care Conference Report

The inaugural 2016 Transforming Care: Midwest Conference on LGBTQ Health Equity and HIV/AIDS brought together over 500 activists, academics, community members, health and social service professionals, and others interested in reducing health disparities in the LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS community. It was held at the Fawcett Event Center on the campus of The Ohio State University on October 20-21, 2016.

This event evolved as a result of the work of two Ohio-based coalitions. The Ohio AIDS Coalition introduced the Ohio Leadership Conference on HIV/AIDS in 1997 and the Central Ohio LGBTQ Health Coalition introduced the Central Ohio LGBTQ Health Equity Conference in 2015. For the first time, these two events came together to expand the mission of both conferences.

The 2016 Transforming Care Conference report is a complete overview of the event, attendees, budgets, and speakers.
