Resources for the Queer Community

health disparities

We at CHAMP see the disparities that exist in our healthcare system. LGBTQIA+ people are 58% more likely to have migraine disease. Additionally given the current climate of attacks on the queer community, especially our trans community, the disparities gap is getting wider. 

We strive to do what we can to help alleviate those disparities. We hope the following resources are helpful.
