About the event
The LGBTQ+ Community Health Fair hosted by UGRC (Us Giving Richmond Connections) in Richmond, VA promises to be a vibrant and inclusive gathering. The fair aims to provide a safe and empowering space for LGBTQ+ individuals and allies to come together and access a wide range of health resources and services.
The event will feature a variety of booths and exhibits, each manned by healthcare professionals, community organizations, and support groups. From mental health counselors to physical therapists, representatives from different healthcare fields will be on hand to offer their expertise and guidance. The fair will cover a broad spectrum of health topics that specifically impact the LGBTQ+ community, including mental health, sexual health, gender-affirming care, HIV/AIDS prevention and education, substance abuse support, and more.
In addition to the informative booths, the health fair will offer a series of workshops and presentations on various pertinent issues. These sessions may cover subjects such as transgender healthcare, inclusive reproductive health, sexual wellness education, navigating insurance, healthcare discrimination and building a strong support system. Educational materials and resources will be readily available to ensure attendees leave with valuable information to empower their own health journey.
