Inclusion Clinic to Serve LGBT PatientsJuly 25, 2018 |
by Audrey Nowakowski
There are more than 100 specialties in the field of medicine. However, few providers and clinics focus their care on the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning/queer) community.
LGBT Community Health Centers operate in only 37 of the 50 states, and many of those do not offer comprehensive services. A lack of access to care, or a previous negative experience, can keep people of the LGBTQ community from seeking medical treatment, which can cause long term health consequences.
