The Whole-Health Assessment is the foundational training for His Health's CME/CNE series, so plan to take this one first.

In this training, candid discussion among experienced providers highlights how the intersection of race and sexuality affects Andre’s experience seeking care as a young Black man who has sex with men (MSM). This course includes information on relevant STD/STI screenings, mental and behavioral health assessments, anal health screening, and vaccinations. You will consider the influence of patients’ experiences both outside of and within your clinical setting, and practice simple strategies to facilitate culturally appropriate, holistic health care for Black MSM patients.

Release Date

  • September 2016

CME/CNE Term of Approval

  • September 2019 - ANAC
  • September 2019 – IDSA/HIVMA

Target Audience

Learning Objectives

At the end of this module you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize and address challenges to healthcare access and utilization for Black MSM
  • Obtain a general sexual and mental health history for Black MSM that is culturally appropriate
