Health Disparities Among LGBT Missourians

Oct 10, 2012

A recently released report shows there is a disparity in health care among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Missourians.  The study by the Missouri Foundation for Health shows LGBT individuals have less access to health care and tend to be less healthy than the general population.

Host Don Marsh talks with Ryan Barker, Director of Health Policy for the Missouri Foundation for Health, and A.J. Bockelman, Executive Director of PROMO, about the study and suggestions for improving health.

SAGE Metro St. Louis is another organization which seeks to enhance quality of life LGBT older adults.
