To anyone who has ever had an experience in the health care system…Tell HHS about it!

November 14, 2011

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is coming to your area to ask for experiences the LGBT community has had with medical providers. The Task Force has been working closely with HHS to make health care fair and inclusive for all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

Our advocacy teams have been working hard to tell HHS what is broken about the Health Care system for LGBT people, but we don’t have enough stories of real people. Now it’s your turn to tell them what the LGBT community needs. Take a look at the cities and dates below and RSVP today!

If you are a patient, make sure to share any positive or negative experiences you’ve had as an LGBT person going to the doctor (insurance claims, front office staff interactions, experiences with medical personnel, etc.). If you work in the medical field, talk about best practices for LGBT health, especially if you’ve implemented them successfully.

If you find yourself close to one of these listening sessions you should attend and make your voice heard!
