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

"Trusting Black Women: Building Sustainable Respect"
Loretta J. Ross, Co-founder and the National Coordinator of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective from 2005-2012.
She has been Creating a Voice for Reproductive and Black WoMENT JUSTICE over 30 years
"The concept of Reproductive Justice began to take shape when members of a women of color delegation returned from the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, Egypt. Shortly after, a group of African American women caucused at the Illinois Pro-Choice Alliance Conference in Chicago. The group became known as Women of African Descent for Reproductive Justice. They decided to devise a strategy to challenge the proposed healthcare reform campaign by the Clinton Administration that did not include guaranteeing access to abortion. Not wanting to use the language of 'choice' because they represented communities with few real choices, they integrated the concepts of reproductive rights, social justice and human rights to launch the term 'Reproductive Justice.'
BLACK WOMEN and Accessibility to Choose

What is the Urban Health Science Initiative?
Pertinent new information to the health of African Americans
With a culture of ignorance prevailing and unwillingness to address deep seated personal but obvious issues, how is the Black community going to acknowledge diseases and their severity as it pertains to the physiological dysfunction we see on a daily basis?
Join Parttners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon as we discuss Zinc, the mineral that 70% of women over the age of 40 don't get enough of.
Right now is the most important time to correct a shortfall. The reason? Zinc helps ward off winter illness. So if you have a deficiency you're more likely to get sick.
Almost all women go undiagnosed because symptoms of a shortfall, including fatigue, hair loss and appetite changes are so vague and common that doctors often fail to make the connection to zinc.
