Increasing Awareness and Support
Join us October 17 to 21, 2022 to bring awareness of LGBTQIA+ people and their oral health to the broader dental and public health communities, create community support, and offer resources, educational materials, and advocacy opportunities. Each day will feature a new theme with activities to elevate all community voices. Pledge to support health equity for all.
Monday: LGBTQIA+ Terminology
Tuesday: LGBTQIA+ Stories in Oral Health
Wednesday: Creating Inclusion
Thursday: Destimatizing LGBTQIA+ Oral Health Care (register here)
Friday: LGBTQIA+ Advocacy
During the dental visit, oral health professionals can foster a safe, inclusive environment for patients. That starts with terminology -- a foundational aspect of LGBTQIA+ health equity and education.
