One Colorado Survey Aims to Improve LGBT Healthcare

The following post comes from HRC Regional Field Organizer Trevor Chandler:

It comes as no surprise that the LGBT community faces unique and serious challenges in today’s healthcare system, and while there have been recent efforts to collect data detailing these issues we remain very much behind where we need to be. Whether it be how knowledgeable your doctor is about LGBT specific health issues or discrimination in the exam room, the more we know about the state of LGBT healthcare the better.

That’s why a survey just put out by our partners at One Colorado is so important, this information will have a direct and intimate affect of the lives of LGBT Coloradans allowing them to advocate to policy makers and healthcare professionals on the changes that need to happen now. If you are living in Colorado, please take time to fill this out and help make the Centennial State that much more welcoming and fair.
