Persad Perspectives

Pondering The Future of Healthcare

Posted March 22nd, 2017

With the future of healthcare policy being debated in Congress and throughout the country, I’m hopeful that everyone will stay informed about the needs of the LGBTQ communities we serve at PERSAD Center. LGBTQ people face a variety of unique health disparities when compared to the general population. Your voice and involvement are essential to help assure that access to critical services are not disrupted by policy changes.
