Now, a new and unique initiative called the Eidos LGBT+ Health Initiative anchored at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Nursing expands this frame to address the needs of LGBT+ communities.

Bauermeister says that for the initial projects of the Eidos LGBT+ Health Initiative he’s drawing on inspiration from that notion, centering the work in community-focused collaborations.

This program uses a health equity tool the team created to assess the LGBT+ health competency of community-based agencies.

For example, Bauermeister sees great potential in an idea from Penn Nursing doctoral student Kierra Foley.

“We think social isolation among aging LGBT people in Philadelphia is a place we can make an impact,” Bauermeister says.
