It’s estimated there are over 1 million LGBT cancer survivors in the country today, and there’s reason to believe people in the LGBT community are carrying a disproportionate cancer burden. Health disparities in the LGBT community are caused by multiple factors that aren’t due to any physiological or genetic differences between lesbians and heterosexuals. Mark your calendars- my guest, Liz Margolies of The National LGBT Cancer Network will address the impact of stress, and the stigma of living with homophobia and discrimination that more than doubles the risk of lesbian’s developing cancer; to listen or comment call: 347-945-5853
