Join us on September 28th for a webinar for healthcare providers to learn about the additional challenges Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people face throughout the cancer experience. This webinar will explore the reasons LGBT people impacted by cancer report lower quality of life and poorer health after treatment. The experiences and needs of young women affected by breast cancer will be highlighted. Concrete steps healthcare providers can take to improve their care of LGBT patients will be discussed.
