Understanding and tackling Health Risk Behaviours among LGBT+ people 

14th June: 10:00-11:30

Studies show that individuals who identify as LGBT+ are more likely to have increased prevalence in poorer outcomes of health risk behaviours (e.g., smoking, drug/alcohol use, physical activity) when compared to the wider population. Poorer LGBT+ health may be attributed to social inequalities, discrimination, isolation and inadequate understanding of needs among healthcare providers. The second webinar in the LGBT+ series aims to explore health risk behaviours reported across LGBT+ populations and showcase initiatives aimed at understanding and reducing risk.
