Webinar: Striving Towards Better Care for LGBTQ+ People Living with MS
Wednesday, June 14, 2023 – 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Join Dr. William Conte for a conversation and understanding about living with MS as an LGBTQ+ individual and how an MS diagnosis and exploration of identity interplay with one another.
During this one-hour presentation, Dr. Conte will describe the differences between sexuality and gender identity, candidly discuss health disparities among the LGBTQ+ community, summarize how gender-affirming hormone therapy affects those living with MS, and summarize factors that influence disease-modifying therapy (DMT) selection.
