Listen in as Paige, LGBTQ patient navigator, and Diogo, patient navigator for cancer screening, discuss the challenges and barriers that the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning) community may face in terms of colorectal cancer screening, misgendering and general access to care.
