The City Paper features the University of Pittsburgh Center for LGBT Health


The University of Pittsburgh Center for LGBT Health has been featured in the July 10, 2013 issue of Pittsburgh City Paper. The director of the Center, Dr. Ron Stall, discusses his focus on an expanded view of LGBT health disparities because of higher than normal health challenges experienced by the LGBT population. He notes that the core of LGBT research has been a “knee to navel” one, mostly study of HIV and sexually-transmitted disease risks. Because of health problems from which this community suffers, such as increased risk for breast cancer, increased suicide risk of young members from bullying, substance-abuse disorders and stress-related conditions, Dr. Stall feels a higher level of attention to all inequities in LGBT physical and mental health is warranted.
