Nahren Gherel Ubushin

Nahren’s project will improve health equity by providing resources and support services through the Pride Center. The Pride Center Vermont provides these services for those that are LGBTQ+. This is a community that faces numerous barriers in accessing healthcare that directly impacts their health outcomes. The database that I will be working on improves access to care by cataloguing providers that are LGTBQ+ friendly. This acts as a valuable resource to those that are LGBTQ+ in finding providers that they can trust, con de, as well as feel safe with. Throughout the summer I will be updating this database to include telehealth and telemedicine services, which is essential
especially during this unknown me of COVID-19. This database will also indicate which providers are able to provide these services for their LGBTQ+ parents.
