In the past year, we’ve moved to beef up our content area on health disparities, including those affecting certain subgroups, including the LGBT population.
To that end, we’ve asked Andrew M. Seaman to pull together an all-around list for reporters covering health issues that affect the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. A medical correspondent at Reuters and the ethics committee chair for the Society of Professional Journalists, he is well placed to help reporters and editors wade through what can be complicated coverage issues or simply new territory.
His comprehensive tip sheet covers everything from terminology and data to specific health issues such as HIV/AIDS and preventive services. If you need guidance on what areas to look at in your coverage or how to find useful resources, his guide is a great place to start.
