Health Care Lags In Treatment Of LGBTQ Patients

Jun 21, 2019

Medical professionals need to be ready to treat patients of all sizes, shapes, and backgrounds.  But there appears to be a gap in their ability to treat LGBTQ people. 

Holly Hinson studies this at Oregon Health & Science University, OHSU.  Dr. Hinson points out that gender identification and sexual orientation can have a bearing on medical care. 

Example: hormone treatments can interact poorly with anti-seizure medication.  These and other findings are published in the journal Neurology.
