Health disparities, systemic inequities, and discrimination often stand in the way of gaining access to MS care for members of the LGBTQ+ community.
As we explore some of the obstacles faced by members of the LGBTQ+ community in accessing healthcare, we'll gain the clinician's perspective in our conversation with MS specialist, Dr. William Conte. We'll hear about the experiences of a queer trans person living with MS when we talk with Payshunz Nagashima. And we'll learn about the National MS Society's efforts to broaden access to MS care for members of underserved communities when we speak with the MS Society's Director of Health Equity Initiatives, Andreina Barnola.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
