Paul S. Schulz, M.D. with Norton Infectious Disease Specialists led a Norton Healthcare system-wide presentation last month on the staggering statistics related to the health of LGBTQ individuals, in an effort to continuously educate providers on the health risks associated with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
Dr. Schulz summarized five points of keeping healthy LGBTQ patients healthy in what he calls “The ABCs of Longevity.”
- Ask/Answer specific questions regarding sex, drugs and mental health
- Adherence to medications
- Be up to date on immunizations
- Cardiovascular disease and Cancer risk screening/modification
