110: Health for All FOLX

June 28, 2024


In our ever-evolving landscape of healthcare, access to quality, expert care remains a significant challenge, particularly for historically marginalized communities who have well-documented health disparities. As the conversation surrounding gender-affirming care grows, an unfortunate truth remains: LGBTQIA+ individuals face significant barriers when accessing care and navigating healthcare systems that are not designed or equipped – and sometimes outright refuse – to support them remains a significant challenge.

In this episode, mission-driven nurses Teddy Tinnell MSN, RN (he/him) and Kate Steinle MSN, NP (she/hers) share how FOLX HEALTH, the largest LGBTQIA+-centric health and wellness platform, is leveraging technology to break down barriers that affect access to care. We discuss what it takes to continually redesign and rebuild a respectful, expert, scalable, transformed telehealth delivery platform and model centered on the needs, locations, and health disparities of the LGTBQIA+ community and how doing so improves and expands access and exceptional care for all.
