Cancer Health Equity NOW

The Office of Community Outreach & Engagement: "Better Outcomes for Everyone"

Jan 7, 2021

Our current cancer screenings are a great tool in detecting cancer at an early stage, with a heavy focus on heterosexual and cisgender populations. Genya Shimkin (she/they) is the CEO and creator of the Q Card Project, which provides queer youth a simple communication tool designed to improve communication between patients and their medical providers. Genya joins us to bring awareness to LGBTQIA+ cancer inequities and how current cancer screenings and education campaigns can be more inclusive of the queer and trans community.
