Description: CenterLink, the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association, and the Network for LGBT Health Equity are teaming up to provide a webinar discussing the “Talk With Your Doctor” campaign, and the impact that it will have on the health of LGBT communities. A new feature of the CDC’s Tips From Former Smokers campaign was unveiled this week— “Talk With Your Doctor” (TWYD). The goal of this phase of the campaign is to engage health care providers and encourage them to use Tips as an opportunity to start a dialogue with their patients who smoke about quitting. It is also meant to serve as a reminder for smokers to talk with their healthcare providers about effective methods to help them quit.

When: Thursday, May 2, 2013
When: 11:00am – 12:30pm Pacific Time

Join Health Outreach Partners and Farmworker Justice for the “Medical-Legal Partnerships for Farmworker Health and Legal Service Organizations” webinar.  The purpose of this webinar is to highlight medical-legal partnerships for farmworker serving organizations.  Farmworker patients often experience the negative health impacts of the social determinants of health such as poor housing, employment issues, violence, and not being eligible for health and social programs.  Medical-Legal Partnerships (MLPs) are increasingly working to address the social determinants of health by addressing both the health and legal needs of patients.  Topics will include an overview of medical-legal partnerships, initiatives and strategies, challenges, and recommendations.  Representatives from health centers and legal agencies serving migrant and seasonal farmworkers will serve as panelists and participants will have the opportunity to pose real-time questions relevant to the topic.
