Patient Discrimination and Provider Prejudice
Patient discrimination and provider prejudice are two elements of healthcare that can’t be ignored when we think of the health and well-being of the LGBTQ Community.
Doctors for Providers would like to spotlight PA-C Deborah Dunn for her outstanding work the last 40 years helping this marginalized and underserved community.
In this article by AAPA they share how it’s always been top of mind for Dunn to treat patients fairly and to make sure EVERY patient is as comfortable as possible. Those fundamentals tie right into her most recent work, the GenderJOY program, in collaboration with endocrinologist Dr. Elyse Pine at Chase Brexton.
Check out the article where they also highlight Tonia Poteat, PhD and Josh Oppenheim, PA-C who share more insights on how prioritizing education could help shrink the disparities and more.
