Global Health Catalyst Talks: Serving the LGBTQ Community in Physical Therapy

In the spirit of engaging and uniting individuals and organizations to promote social responsibility, Catalyst Talks provoke and challenge us to consider how our attitudes and actions impact the health of individuals and communities around the world. This thought-provoking session will address the many issues related to the ÒinclusionÓ of the LGBTQ community in all that we do as physical therapists and physical therapy educators. The session brings varied perspectives and prompts intellectual discussion on some very tough questions, such as: How do we include relevant teaching and learning in our curricula? How do we best serve LGBTQ clinicians, faculty, students, and patients/clients? How do we stand up for social justice and equity for all? What are the social justice and social responsibilities related to the LGBTQ community? How does the "right to health" drive our attitudes and behaviors? In the end, attendees will be inspired to pursue the answers to these tough questions through contemplative dialogue. The ultimate goal of the Catalyst Talks is to promote thoughtful and ethical practices.
