Today, more than ever before, there is growing recognition that access to health care is unequally distributed, and historically marginalized populations are suffering as a result. A fundamental transformation in the field of medicine is needed to ensure the health and well-being of LGBTQ+ patients—a group that remains largely underserved in health care.

During this virtual conversation, we will share how Stanford Medicine’s emerging LGBTQ+ Health Program aims to address the medical, social, and mental health needs of LGBTQ+ people in the Bay Area and beyond.

Please join us for this first in a series of virtual briefings on October 29, 2020, from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. PDT.
