Research out of Oregon Health & Science University in Portland backs up with other researchers have found: health care for LGBTQ+ people isn't as good as what the rest of the population gets. Issues arise that medical professionals do not catch, and often the correct questions are not asked.
An effort to close the gap comes to Medford next week (October 8th), with an LGBTQ Health Care Forum at the Medford Library.
Lauri Hoagland, health care pro and member of the Jackson County Democratic Party healthcare caucus, visits with an overview of the issues and how the forum will address them. She is joined by Rory Mesa, of the Dems' LGBTQ Caucus, and Michael Klein from the LGBTQ Task Force.
