The LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning) Health Initiative at Columbus Public Health was created to address gaps in care and issues of health inequity within LGBTQ communities. The initiative works to provide cultural competency/humility training to healthcare and social service professionals, connect community partners through the Greater Columbus LGBTQ Health Coalition, and promote healthy lifestyle choices with programs geared toward LGBTQ communities.
