Knowing that the rainbow team exists and the written resources is what I have taken from this

This has been very helpful – thank you! I am definitely limited in experience with this area, but you have given me many resources and encouragement to learn more about the LGTBQ community!

I think this was awesome!!! Thank you for the resources!!

My take away is to begin to notice and avoid bias that may come into my questions with my patients an clients. Thank you team Rainbow!

My take away is to be aware of using inclusive language and not make assumptions.
