Addressing Social Determinants of Health for Transgender People Through Policy Advocacy and the Affordable Care Act

Meeting Description:
The Center for Strengthening Youth Prevention Paradigms (SYPP Center) invites you to participate in a webinar with Masen Davis, Executive Director of Transgender Law Center. If you are unsure what implementation of the Affordable Care Act will mean for LGBT people, especially transgender communities, then this webinar is for you. Masen Davis will also provide a context for the discussion by explaining the link between social determinants of health, such as health care access and discrimination, and health outcomes for transgender people.

This webinar is part of the “Third Thursdays Webinar Series,” which is designed for HIV prevention providers serving youth, particularly young gay men and transgender youth of color.

After this webinar, you will be able to:

  1. Recognize the prevalence and impact of discrimination on transgender communities
  2. Describe linkages between discrimination and health for transgender people
  3. Identify opportunities to improve the health of LGBT youth and adults through implementation of the Affordable Care Act

Housed at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, SYPP Center provides capacity building assistance (CBA) services to communities seeking to prevent HIV/AIDS among youth, with an emphasis on young gay men and transgender youth of color. SYPP Center offers a framework for communities to create sustainable structural changes and build healthy community coalitions that respond to local needs.
