June is LGBTQ Pride Month, a good time to better understand the health and wellness concerns of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community. A panel of experts from Harvard Medical School will share research and experiences with LGBTQ patients, answer questions about health disparities, and discuss the importance of social supports and how to foster an inclusive environment that is welcoming to all.
