2015 Steering committee E-Summit
In October, 2015, LGBT HealthLink and its Steering Committee held their first ever E-Summit, sharing information and best practices around LGBT tobacco and cancer issues, healthcare rights, and much more. We've collected webinar videos, presentations, and many downloadable materials so that you can be a part of this important work too.
Achieving Health Equity in Tobacco Control
We're pretty excited about the Surgeon General's 50th Anniversary Executive Committee Workgroup on Disparities documents we helped create.
These documents pull together top level information about every disparity population to make the case in one short paper. We have never had anything this comprehensive out at once.
We are in the process of updating our extensive document repository. Until it is re-curated, re-organized, and re-optimized to help you find exactly what you may be looking for, we suggest you swing by the exisiting resource library at http://lgbttobacco.org/resources.php.
