The National LGBT Health Education Center offers over 50 on-demand webinars in a variety of LGBT health topics, all of which meet the HEI training requirements for on-going LGBT training.

For four years in a row, UNC Hospitals received Equality Leader status from the Healthcare Equality Index (HEI). The Human Rights Campaign Foundation developed the HEI to address “the need for equitable, knowledgeable, sensitive and welcoming healthcare, free from discrimination based on LGBT status.” The Foundation is charged with promoting equitable and inclusive care for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender patients and their families. Equality Leader recognition indicates that UNC Hospitals is committed to protecting its LGBT patients and employees from discrimination. The HEI survey gives health care facilities the resources they need to provide LGBT patient-centered care and recognizes those who explicitly commit to LGBT equity and inclusion.

The National LGBT Health Education Center has partnered with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation to offer over 50 on-demand webinars as on-going training for the HRC Foundation’s Healthcare Equality Index. All webinars offered by The Education Center will count towards the on-going LGBT education training requirement to receive the HEI leadership designation. The webinars also support UNC Health Care System’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. In order to receive HEI credit, each participant must view a webinar and complete the short evaluation survey required for CME/CEU credit. To complete the evaluation, click the “evaluation survey” button after viewing the on-demand video.
