Offering LGBTQ Pediatric Care
Children's HealthCare Prides itself on offering inclusive care, including the LGBTQ community!
Children who are questioning their sexual identities or who have confident sexual identities but are struggling with a lack of acceptance and understanding from their family and friends need to be provided “honest answers and compassion in dealing with issues and questions around sexual orientation, identity and sexual behaviors” from their pediatric providers.
Did you know? Our own Susan Bryant Sutter MSN, CPNP, is a member of the 2018 Leadership Cohort of Nursing Champions for Health Equity through the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. The LGBT community lacks health equity due in part to numerous barriers to care from the health care systems and Sue, along with Children's HealthCare wish to help change that! Our office provides inclusive healthcare for all children and adolescents, including the LGBTQ population and their families.
