Equality equals health at the Center for Total Health (and everywhere) View on Flickr
This month’s tour is a focus on supporting a diverse workforce and a healthy diverse community, inclusive of trans people, as well as their lesbian, gay, and bisexual peers.
Our nation is celebrating National LGBT Health Awareness Week on the day of the tour, which is Monday, March 25, at 9:30 am.
Kaiser Permanente is celebrating the earning of a 100 % rating on the Human Rights Campaign (@HRC) Corporate Equality Index (CEI), which is joined by its existing 100 % rating on the Healthcare Equality Index (HEI).

If 100% on these indices meant that health and health care was accessible to all LGBT people, there would not need to be an awareness week or a dialogue about LGBT health. However, they are just a start, more discussion is needed about what it means to eliminate health inequalities in this population, especially for trans people, who we will emphasize this month.
