LGBT Weekly - New 'LGBT Health' Journal Launched
Mary Ann Liebert Inc., Publishers has published the preview issue of LGBT Health, a new peer-reviewed journal dedicated to promoting optimal health care for millions of sexual and gender minority persons worldwide. "This is a historical moment for LGBT health care," said Editor-in-Chief William Byne, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "Increased recognition of LGBT health disparities together with recent progressive developments have created an extraordinary window of opportunity to profoundly lower the barriers to health care for LGBT-identified persons, to research the most important health concerns and needs of specific LGBT populations, and to train clinicians in the best practices to meet those needs."
