Intersectional Approach to Tobacco Cessation for LGBTQ+ People: A Masterclass

May 25, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

UCSF National Center of Excellence for Tobacco Free Recovery Logo

As a record number of anti-LGBTQ bills continues to be introduced in 2023, the LGBTQ+ community faces not only increasing barriers to effective and equitable care but also trauma and stressors in their everyday lives. Research demonstrates a strong connection between toxic stress, trauma and increased risk of commercial tobacco use; therefore, it is critical to address the disproportionate impact of tobacco use on LGBTQ+ communities. How can we best approach our tobacco efforts to effectively support LGBTQ+ people with MH/SU challenges?

Join the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco and Cancer Control and the National LGBT Cancer Network on Thursday, May 25, 2-4 p.m. ET, for a masterclass exploring the protective assets and challenges in addressing tobacco use among LGBTQ+ populations with intersecting identities.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Understand the root causes of tobacco-related disparities for LGBTQ+ individuals with MH/SU challenges.
  • Learn how to apply an intersectional lens – while considering systemic and protective factors – in addressing tobacco use.
  • Gain strategies and identify next steps to create systemic change in addressing tobacco use among LGBTQ+ individuals with MH/SU challenges.
