Online Event: Fostering Equity And Inclusion In Healthcare Settings

January 27, 2021 – 7:00PM to 8:30PM

In the first part of the Somerset County LGBTQ+ Advisory Board speaker series, they’re partnering with RWJ Babs Siperstein PROUD Center to talk about LGBTQ+ healthcare in a free, virtual event.

Paula Gutierrez (she/her), Director of Diversity and Inclusion, will give a keynote speech about D&I, followed by a choice of 3 breakout sessions of different health topics.

One breakout room will be on Wellness and Prevention. It will be lead by Danielle King (she/her), LGBTQ+ Patient Navigator, dedicated patient advocate, and health educator with over 10 years of experience working with community members and social determinants of health.

The second will be on Transgender Health, presented by Alicia Rogers (she/her), an RN with over 10 years of experience in various healthcare fields, including hospital settings such as Labor and Delivery, emergency departments, and Nurse Management.

The last will be on Mental Health, headed by two counselors from CogniCare Psychological Services, Jasmine Mushington (she/her) and Ali Long (they/them). Both are passionate about working with minority communities, including the LGBTQ+ community.

There will be opportunities for Q&A both in the breakout rooms and in the general session; any questions not answered will be followed up on.
