March 21-25 is the 20th National LGBTQ+ Health Awareness Week! Washington Health Institute believes that every person deserves comprehensive, high-quality and inclusive healthcare, which is why we acknowledge, support and celebrate this important week.
What is National LGBTQ+ Health Awareness Week?
Every year in March, LGBTQ+ Health Awareness Week brings attention to the health concerns of the LGBTQ+ community. This week is dedicated to education, advocacy and support for improved health outcomes for LGBTQ+ people of all ages.
How we can Improve LGBTQ+ Health Outcomes
There are many barriers that exist within our healthcare system that prevent LGBTQ+ people from getting the care they need. These barriers can include discrimination, homophobia and transphobia from healthcare providers, as well as a lack of resources and awareness.
It’s crucial that we work together to break down these barriers and create a more inclusive environment for everyone. By raising awareness about the health concerns of the LGBTQ+ community and advocating for better healthcare policies, we can improve the health outcomes of everyone.

How Washington Health Institute Is Different
For Washington Health Institute, inclusivity in healthcare is at the forefront of everything we do. Patients of different races, cultures, gender identities and sexualities have been shown to feel unwelcome and undervalued in healthcare spaces. Our team at WHI hopes to change that by making all our patients feel safe and respected. Not only do we welcome patients from all walks of life, but we take active steps to work with you as an individual to give you the comprehensive, compassionate and inclusive care you deserve.
