Third Annual LGBTQI+ Health Symposium: Health Disparities in Marginalized LGBTQI+ Populations
Friday, April 12, 2019
Swedish First Hill - Glaser Auditorium
Swedish Medical Center’s Third Annual LGBTQI+ Health Symposium is designed to identify and evaluate the barriers to care and other healthcare inequities faced by marginalized populations within the LGBTQI+ community. Featuring roundtable panel sessions with representatives from advocacy organizations and didactic lectures from expert faculty, this course will evaluate how intersectional identities affect the healthcare experience for LGBTQI+ patients. This course will also explore ways in which healthcare professionals can improve their patient care and outcomes, as well as advocate for their patients in practice. Topics of focus will include Intersex persons, communities of color, refugees, HIV and substance abuse in LGBTQI+ patients.
This conference is intended for all healthcare professionals including physicians, ARNPs, PAs nurses, allied health professionals, administrative leaders, patient health advocates and residents/fellows from Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho and Oregon.

Aging with Pride: IDEA
Are you or a loved one experiencing memory loss?
Aging with Pride: IDEA (Innovations in Dementia Empowerment and Action) is an exercise and problem-solving program for older adults with memory loss and the people who help them. Learn about the program and join by contacting us at (888) 655-6646 or ageIDEA@uw.edu.
Aging with Pride: IDEA is the first federally-funded project testing a program designed to improve quality of life for LGBTQ people who experience memory loss or who help those experiencing memory loss. Participants are compensated for their time.
The study takes place in the Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles metropolitan areas. Older adults with memory loss can participate with an informal care partner, who may be a spouse or partner, friend, family member, or anyone who assists them. Either the person with memory loss or the person who helps them (or both) must be LGBTQ. Participants meet with a coach to learn exercises and strategies related to memory loss. The program includes 9 in-person sessions with the coach over 6 weeks, with follow-up phone calls.
IDEA is led by University of Washington School of Social Work professor Karen Fredriksen Goldsen and UW Nursing professor Linda Teri. Dr. Fredriksen Goldsen is the primary investigator for Aging with Pride: National Health, Aging, and Sexuality/Gender Study (NHAS), the first national longitudinal study of health and well-being in LGBTQ older adults, and Dr. Teri pioneered the RDAD (Reducing Disabilities in Alzheimer’s Disease) program, which has been shown to improve quality of life for people with memory loss and reduce rates of institutionalization.
