No matter who we are or how we feel about the tissue that hangs from our chest, one thing is true:
We deserve mammography and chest wall care that affirms our bodies, genders, and identities.
Affirming Healthcare Makes a Difference!
Research shows that due to past negative experiences with healthcare providers, LGBTQ people tend to delay regular health screenings, which results in later stage cancer diagnoses and worse outcomes. That’s why we’re training mammography staff across Ohio to provide culturally competent services to LGBTQ communities.
