Over the years, LGBTQ+ community members have taken the time to talk with us at The Conversation Project about ways to best meet their needs when it comes to having conversations about what matters most for their health care through the end of life. We’d like to share some of what we’ve learned, what you can do to advocate for your own care or the care of someone important to you, and suggestions for health care providers to keep in mind.
Across May and June, as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and graduations are top of mind for many, we are encouraging community members to tap into these celebrations/achievements as a potential time to jumpstart conversations. Check out our newest communications toolkit for an overview of this current theme, with ready-made messages for newsletters, social media, email, and flyers in case you want to join in.
“The Conversation Project emphasizes having a conversation on values — what matters to you, not what‘s the matter with you.”
– Ellen Goodman, Co-Founder & Director
