While attending APHA 2011 in Washington, D.C.

Greetings from cold but beautiful DC!

TODAY from 2:30 PM – 3:00 PM
LGBT Poster Presentation – Poster 8
Health profile of a convenience sample of LGBTT communities: Findings from the Community-base groups LGBTT health initiative survey of Puerto Rico from November 2009 to November 2010 by Elba Cecilia Díaz-Toro, DMD, MSD, MPH and Juan Carlos Vega, MLS.

Come by, say hello and learn about the local health survey results and how it compares to other Latino/a communities and LGBTT communities, as well as with other state surveys. We will try to create a “warm” space for all!

Thanks always for the support from the Network for LGBT Health Equity.
Gracias, Juan Carlos
