The mission of Fenway Health “is to enhance the wellbeing of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and all people in our neighborhoods and beyond through access to the highest quality health care, education, research and advocacy.” Dr. Kapila will be discussing the history of Fenway Health as well as his own experience working with LGBT patients, sharing his insights on what future healthcare providers should know in order to provide quality care when working with LGBT patients. Dr. Kapila is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Psychiatry. He has been working at Fenway Health since 2002, and his clinical interests include crystal meth abuse, HIV care, the health care needs of LGBT community, integration of physical and mental health, preventive medicine (HIV prevention, STD care and prevention), and substance abuse.
