San Mateo County LGBTQ Commission to host the California LGBTQ Reducing Disparities Project Presentation of Findings From "First Do No Harm: Reducing Disparities for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning Populations in California"
On December 4, 2014, the San Mateo County LGBTQ Commission will host a presentation of the California LGBTQ Reducing Disparities Project. The event will be held from 6-9pm at the San Mateo County Office Building in Room 101 located at 455 County Center, Redwood City, 94063.
The California LGBTQ Reducing Disparities Project is a program of Mental Health America of Northern California (MHANCA), in collaboration with Equality California Institute, and funded by the Pride Initiative, Adolescent Counseling Services, and Outlet.
"The San Mateo County LGBTQ Commission is delighted to support the local sharing of this statewide information highlighting needs within the LGBTQ communities," said Dr. Jei Africa, who is a Commissioner and also the Director of Diversity and Equity at the Health Department's Behavioral Health and Recovery Services Division.
The Board of Supervisors created the LGBTQ Commission this past June to further the cause of inclusiveness and advocate for policies affecting the local LGBTQ communities.
