Health Systems Change to Address Tobacco Use in LGBT+ Communities: A Conversation with the LGBT Cancer Network Webcast

September 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join the American Lung Association on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, at 2:00 PM ET in a conversation with the National LGBT Cancer Network to address tobacco use in the LGBTQ+ community. Available data show that LGBT+ populations use tobacco products, particularly menthol cigarettes, at higher rates than their cisgender and heterosexual counterparts. Even so, our understanding of tobacco-related disparities are limited by the lack of representative data at local, state and national levels, particularly for transgender, gender diverse, and minority populations.

This webcast will explore the meaningful changes health systems can make to better address and support this specific population in ending their tobacco use through enhanced sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) data collection and other systems change activities.
