Represent: LGBTQ+ Health Matters Webinar

All LGBTQ+ Americans deserve to be seen, heard, and understood— especially when it comes to medical research.

We will discuss the consequences that this lack of research has on physical and mental health, provide useful talking points to discuss with your healthcare provider, and share how you can help make a difference for your own health, and the future health of the entire LGBTQ+ community, through medical research that includes everyone.
