We have diverse topics discussions, such as homophobia in healthcare, lesbian legal issues, “Understanding Lab Tests for the Lay-person,” “How to Use the System: Managed Care 101,” cancer screening and prevention, HIV/AIDS, lesbian battering, women and addiction, depression, and so forth. 

The topics address not only specific diagnoses, but they also address how one can overcome barriers to accessing healthcare. Both healthcare professionals and volunteers benefit from this dynamic interaction. You are welcome to join us!
