About The Event
The theme of the event is providing culturally congruent care to diverse populations with a focus on the health care of the LGBTQ+ population. Attendees will hear from four dynamic health care experts who will not only share their expertise but will help nurses understand and recognize health care barriers affecting the LGBTQ+ population including implicit bias and the impact these variables have on patient care outcomes. Nurses will also be equipped with knowledge related to holistic nursing and the event will conclude with a self-care session for health care providers, a great ending to a great afternoon!

Nurses who attend all four sessions in their entirety and complete each session evaluation will be awarded 4.0 continuing education contact hours.

The Michigan Nurses Foundation is the charitable arm of the MNA. A 501(3)c, your tax-deductible donation helps provide scholarships to nursing students and recovery grants to nurses and healthcare professionals around the state who find themselves in financial need while seeking recovery treatment.
