Planned in collaboration with students in the Family Nurse Practitioner program, this panel will feature a diverse array of members from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning community talking about their experiences with health care.  What do we, as LGBTQ people, want our nurses and doctors to know?  What are some of the experiences we have had that haven't been positive?  How can we include more cultural competency in trainig and continuing education for health professions?
