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
  • Compiled newsfeed: lists interesting and prevalent articles relevant to the LGBT community
  • Testing site locator: this locator is integrated into their homepage and allows you to search for HIV/STD testing facilities based on zip code
  • Studies and stats: the CDC has a variety of statistics about HIV/STD rates, mental health topics, and other pertinent health issues
  • 3rd party resources: in addition to their own sponsored content, the CDC features links to other reputable resources such as the American Psychiatric Association, The Institute of Medicine, the Fenway Institute and more
