Caring for LGBTQ+ Youth

Class Details

Join us for a Pride Month Kernel of Knowledge session presented by Katherine L Imborek, MD, entitled Caring for LGBTQ+ Youth. This presentation will detail foundational terms and definitions imperative for respectful interactions with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ+) persons. There will be a specific focus on health care needs specific to LGBTQ youth.

Dr Imborek completed her medical school education at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine and her residency training in Family Medicine at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. As a medical student, she founded the student group now known as EQUAL Meds to promote implementation of LGBTQ health related topics in the curriculum. She is an Associate Professor for the University of Iowa and the medical director for the University of Iowa Health Care off-site primary care clinics. Her clinical practice is located at the UI Health Care Scott Blvd Clinic where she has an outpatient with obstetrics practice. Along with Dr. Nicole Nisly, she developed and continues to co-direct the University of Iowa Health Care LGBTQ Clinic. She received the UI Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity Catalyst Award, given to individuals who have promoted an inclusive campus community, both as a medical student and again as a faculty member. She was awarded with the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine Early Distinguished Career Achievement Award in 2017. She routinely lectures to medical students, residents, faculty, and staff regarding competent and compassionate care for the LGBTQ community.
