Out in Tech PDX | Healthcare in the community: Does who we are affect how we are?

April 22, 2019 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Does who we are affect how we are? How can we make healthcare a more even playing field? What unique challenges does the LGBTQ+ community have with regards to healthcare? How can we make that healthcare more accessible?

Join us at Vacasa for a talk on the collection of LGBTQ+ demographic information in electronic health records, why it is important, how its introduction is changing medical care for the LGBTQ+ community, and the unique challenges that our community faces. We’ll have a 20-minute talk, followed by a 40-minute panel with folx with roles ranging from healthcare administration to policy. And stay for the social afterwards, with food and drinks provided by Randstad Technologies!
