The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) would like to invite community stakeholders, representatives of health organizations, and individuals concerned about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) health issues to join the LGBT Health Advisory Council. This council will advise CDPH and support the implementation of the LGBT Community Action Plan. Membership will also provide the individuals serving on the council a unique opportunity to participate in policy development and share feedback with CDPH.
The LGBT Community Action Plan includes specific strategies to address the health needs of this diverse community. There is strong evidence that the LBGT community experiences disparities in health status and healthcare access due to its unique minority position and other factors.
