Bioethics Public Seminar Series
Controversies and Complexities
in LGBTQ Health Care
Schedule: January 27, Wednesday, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Panelists: Emily Antoon-Walsh, MD, MA, FAAP (she/her); Barry DeCoster, PhD (he/him); Henry Ng, MD, MPH, FAAP, FACP (he/they).
Do you feel prepared to provide excellent care to your LGBTQ patients? Calls for social justice and corrective actions are being mounted by various and intersectional
constituencies. These calls for social change must be reflected in improved clinical care,
as well. What do LGBTQ patients want from their healthcare providers? What are some
of the ethical and clinical challenges that clinicians and patients face? This seminar will
address these broadly understood health issues that impact the LGBTQ community, as
we aim toward an inclusive and equitable health delivery system. Bring your questions
and take part in this exciting and timely conversation with a panel of MSU alumni.
