Today


We have a knowledge deficit

Many health professionals never learned the basics of the special needs, concerns, and health issues of the LGBTQ+ community. Some may not know appropriate terminology or may be afraid to say the wrong thing. They may feel that they treat all of their patients equally and not recognize the need for targeted care. Most health education degree-granting programs include limited or no information on caring for LGBTQ+ patients.

Rainbow Health Consulting was founded with one goal in mind - to eliminate that knowledge deficit through educating health professionals so that they may provide the highest quality care to LGBTQ+ patients and their families.

LGBT patients are at a higher risk for substance use, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), cancers, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, bullying, isolation, rejection, anxiety, depression, and suicide as compared to the general population. LGBT youth receive poor quality of care due to stigma, lack of healthcare providers’ awareness, and insensitivity to the unique needs of this community.
