About LGBT HealthLink
LGBT HealthLink, formerly The Network for LGBT Health Equity, is a community-driven network of advocates and professionals looking to enhance LGBT health by eliminating tobacco use, reduce cancer, and understand other health realities within our communities. We are one of 8 CDC-funded cancer and tobacco disparity networks. We advance these issues primarily by linking people and information to educate on best practices. We maintain a virtual forum of LGBT tobacco and wellness professionals, encouraging them to share lessons and jointly monitor gaps in the arena. We gather and maintain a promising practice clearinghouse through our website. We directly train state health departments or other policymakers in LGBT cultural competency and forge bridges between them and local LGBT health specialists. We actively monitor national and state health policymakers and urge community action when there is an opportunity to enhance LGBT wellness.
