We provide diversity and inclusion education to health care providers on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community to ensure that future health care experiences will remain free from barriers for all LGBTQ+ patients, families, and employees.

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.

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, or the health disparities faced by LGBTQ+ communities.

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.


Be the Solution!

Be The Future of LGBTQ+ Health Care

Rainbow Health Consulting works nationwide with hospitals, care providers, insurance companies, and others to train employees on the health issues and concerns of the LGBTQ+ population. Training from Rainbow Health Consulting supports organizations to reassure their staff and members of the LGBTQ+ community that they will be welcomed into a safe and supportive environment that is responsive to their needs. Rainbow Health Consulting’s professional development hours demonstrate an organization’s commitment to providing the LGBTQ+ community with inclusive care and/or service delivery while fostering a culture of consumer engagement and continuous quality improvement.

We fully customize in-service education seminars and lectures so that culturally sensitive, barrier-free care can be provided for all patients. We would be happy to speak with you more about how our business can help your business!
