Second Annual National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Health Awareness Week
NASW supports the National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Health Awareness Week (March 14- March 20). National LGBT Health Awareness Week is a project of the National Coalition for LGBT Health.
March 14 through March 20, 2004 marks the Second Annual National LGBT Health Awareness Week. The goals of the week are to raise public awareness of the unique health disparities and health concerns among the LGBT communities; educate medical and health care professionals in the area of cultural competency with regard to LGBT health; and educate the LGBT communities about the health issues that affect lives in significant ways.
