Join Dr. Dustin Portela (Between Two Derms) and Dr. Angelo Landriscina as they talk about LGBTQ+ Care in Dermatology. Dr. Landriscina desires to help dermatologists have a better-nuanced understanding of how to take care of sexual and gender minority patients. They touch on the lack of data collection that the health industry has for the LGBTQ+ community, the archaic iPledge system that isn’t gender-affirming, and how both patients and medical practitioners can appropriately communicate with each other.
By the end of the episode, you will learn the health challenges that you should be aware of for sexual & gender minority patients and how to advocate for yourself when seeking healthcare. Enjoy!
