Taking care of yourself is about more than just seeing a doctor when a health issue comes up. It’s about recognizing the importance of preventative care, and having a doctor who’s looking out for the health concerns specific to GLBTQI individuals. When you do that, you ensure that you’re receiving the type of care that will truly help you stay healthy. And by taking care of yourself, you’re also taking care of the GLBTQI community as a whole.
