“LGBTQ Cultures” text wins AJN “Book of the Year” award!

We are delighted to announce that the text LGBTQ Cultures: What Health Care Professionals Need to Know About Sexual and Gender Diversity, authored by Mickey Eliason and Peggy Chinn, has won first place in the “Community/Public Health” category of the American Journal of Nursing 2018 Book of the Year Awards!  This is also the recommended text for the LavenderHealth.org “Education” resources.  Here is the summary that is provided in the supplement details related to this award:

This book is a dedicated resource on a subject historically not included in health care training programs. It serves as a terrific guide for health care professionals (and students) to providing appropriate, culturally-sensitive care to persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities. A handy size with a fantastic layout featuring appealing and informative boxes, case studies, and learning aids, this text can be used for further exploration and discussion. It is an essential clinical guide and classroom resource applicable to all health care and health care policy settings.

  • Reflects current research.
  • Provides best practices for any health care professional, educator, community health worker, or policymaker.
  • Text boxes such as “Imagine This,” “Try This,” “Think About It,” “Read This,” “Watch This,” and “No Dumb Questions” pique the reader’s interest and encourage learning.
