GSE presents the Asbury Park Community Patient Empowerment Project. Thanks to the Provident Bank Foundation, GSE is able to target the low-income LGBTQ community of Asbury Park!
Through this project, we will be conducting competency and train-the-trainer trainings and community workshops throughout Asbury Park. The trainings will be for the healthcare provider in Asbury Park and the surrounding areas. The community workshops will be for members of our community to feel empowered in with their healthcare! GSE wants to promote healthy habits and regular checkups; provide residents with information about available resources; build a sense of community; foster a more positive view of services available within the community. To see if we have any of our LGBTQ Community Workshops coming up, click here to see our calendar!
At the end of this project, we will be hosting a LGBTQ Health Disparities conference at Monmouth University on Friday, November 8, 2019. The goal of the symposium is to share outcomes of the Asbury Park LGBT Patient Advocacy Project and call to action for healthcare reform for New Jersey LGBT health equity. We are hopeful the model used in Asbury Park can be replicated throughout our great state!
