Network for LGBT Health Equity

The Network for LGBT Health Equity is a community-driven network of advocates and professionals looking to enhance LGBT health by eliminating tobacco use, and other health disparities within our communities. We are one of six CDC-funded tobacco disparity networks and a project of The Fenway Institute in Boston. We directly train state health departments or other policymakers in LGBT cultural competency and forge bridges between them and local LGBT health specialists. We actively monitor national and state health policymakers and urge community action when there is an opportunity to enhance LGBT wellness.
