  • LGBTQ+ Health

    LGBTQ+ individuals may have many of the same health concerns as the general population but experience health challenges at higher rates. Research has shown that a history of discrimination and stigma has contributed to higher rates of mental illness among LGBTQ+ community members. We’ll explore the health concerns for those in the LGBTQ+ community and hear individual stories.

  • Substance Abuse in a Pandemic

    Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans are also facing a substance use crisis. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the pandemic has prompted more people to start or increase use of a substance as a way of coping with the stress. Overdose deaths have also spiked since the start of the pandemic.

  • Delaying Care During a Pandemic

    The biggest concern we had when we were at the beginning of the pandemic and everything was shutting down was that we were not doing our mammogram screenings and it was a lack of knowledge on how this virus spreads.

  • Routine Healthcare in a Pandemic

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, many put off routine healthcare and screenings in order to stay away from the doctor’s office but what are the lasting effects of this delay in healthcare? How are those that delayed their care getting back on track? Plus – what role will telemedicine continue to play in the future of healthcare?
