Bisexual people face various health-related disparities, including higher rates of suicidality and intimate partner violence than even their lesbian and gay counterparts. In this program, we will look at the concept of minority stress as it relates to LGBTQ+ people and highlight disparities faced by bisexual people. We will challenge negative messages and stigma that surround the bisexual community, explore what it means to identify as bisexual, and discuss strategies for supporting bisexual students.

Define bisexuality
Understand some specific challenges faced by those in this identity group
Describe current data on health disparities and risk factors among bisexual people
Identify ways to provide patient-centered care and resources to bisexual patients
