Free Seminar: LGBT Health in Colorado at Seasons Cafe, Salida

August 17, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Know Your Health – Know Your Rights: LGBTQ Health in Colorado

A seminar for those in the LGBTQ community, their family and friends, and anyone interested in health equity for all people

Did you know that you cannot be discriminated against by hospitals based on your sexual orientation or gender identity?

Did you know that for chronic illnesses like HIV/AIDS, you are entitled to the care you need with no lifetime dollar limits?

Did you know that same-sex spouses must be offered the same health insurance coverage as opposite-sex spouses?

Did you know that Colorado prohibits anti-transgender exclusions and clauses in private plans sold in Colorado?

This highly informative seminar will be led by One Colorado, which is an LGBTQ advocacy group. It will address these and many other LGBTQ health issues and will be of special interest to everyone who believes that all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, deserve quality and equal healthcare.

Sponsored by: Chaffee County Public Health, One Colorado, PFLAG-Salida, Partnership for Community Action, Sellars Project Space, Colorado Regional Health Connectors, and sincere thanks to Seasons Café for providing the use of their restaurant and refreshments free of charge.
