The Yavapai Community Health Department recently published the 2022 Yavapai LGBTQ+ Healthcare Access Survey. This survey provides much needed data on the health disparities experiences by the LGBTQ+ Community here in rural Yavapai County. Access the full Survey Results Here
According to the results:
62% of all respondents said that they agree or some what agree that they have been refused care due to LGBTQ+ identity.
Prism Network is partnering with the Yavapai Community Health Department to create a coalition that will improve access to inclusive healthcare and create an LGBTQ+ inclusive Health Care List.
We are looking to build a coalition of community partners and medical providers working together to better serve the health and wellness needs of the LGBTQ+ Community in Yavapai County.
We are officially starting to reach out to organizations we think will be a great fit for for the Coalition. If you or your organization is interested please fill out the form linked below:

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
