Welcome to Iowa City GLBT Health
Welcome. This website was created for the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT or LGBT) community of Iowa City, Iowa and the health care providers who work with them. The intent is to educate the GLBT community of the health issues specific to the community, provide access to gay-friendly doctors and other gay-friendly resources in the community, and to educate the community resources about the specific needs of the GLBT community.
Included is a section on GLBT health. This has links to a several GLBT-specific health care information pages, including:
- Health care info for GLBT people
- Information about coming out to your doctor
The local Resources component was the driving force behind this effort, and is the compilation of GLBT services in the community.
- GLBT friendly clinics
- Sexually transmitted disease (STD or STI) testings sites
- HIV/AIDS resources
- Alcohol and substance abuse resources
- Mental health resources
- University resources.
The state and national resources section is still in its infancy, and we would appreciate additional resources to include.
Finally, we have included a collection of resources for health care providers to assist in caring for the GLBT community.
- General information for working with GLBT patients
- Transgender treatment guidelines
- Provider directory
Please feel free to contact us with suggestions. Thank you.
