While Apicha Community Health Center strives to be a continuing resource for LGBT health, there are many other helpful tools available.

The CDC, or Center for Disease Control and Prevention, is not only a great general health resource but also an amazing knowledge hub for the LGBT community.

A Summary of Their Resources

  • Extensive subpages: the CDC takes a comprehensive approach to their information and has pages tailored for all subsets of the LGBT community including our youth
