Cancer of the Breast Tissue in the LGBTQ+ Communities: Disparities in Prevalence and Health

Panel: Michelle Veras, National LGBT Cancer Network; Lori Gum, breast cancer survivor; Julia M. Applegate, Director, Equitas Health Institute

Moderator: Julia M. Applegate, Equitas Health Institute

Description: LGBTQ+ community members have been shown to be significantly less likely to receive a mammogram due to past negative experiences when seeking medical care. Additionally, lesbian and bisexual women have higher rates of a number of breast cancer risk factors, including increased alcohol use, higher rates of smoking, obesity, and nulliparity.

In this session we talk data with Michelle Veras of the National LGBT Cancer Network, tailored LGBTQ+ cancer education with Julia Applegate of the Equitas Health Institute, and hear from Columbus, Ohio breast cancer survivor, Lori Gum.
