Presenter: Liz Margolies - Founder & Executive Director, The National LGBT Cancer Network


According to the National LGBT Cancer Network,Liz Margolies photos lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people are carrying a disproportionate cancer burden and have a unique "cluster of risk factors" that lead to greater cancer incidence and later stage diagnosis. 

Estimating that there are over 1 million LGBT cancer survivors in the country today, the Network argues that LGBT people suffer from health disparaties "caused by a combination of social/economic factors and behaviors, many of which can be traced to the stress of living as a sexual/gender minority in this country."

Join Liz Margolies in a discussion of the healthcare concerns faced by LGBT people and how healthcare providers can increase their understanding of and effectiveness in addressing these issues.
