Lesbian health experts and advocates are coming together to celebrate the release of Lesbian Health 101: A Clinician’s Guidea first ever textbook on the subject. The event will also mark the 10th anniversary of LHRC, the Lesbian Health and Research Center at UCSF.

Lesbian health experts and advocates are coming together Monday, Feb. 08 at UCSF to celebrate the release of Lesbian Health 101: A Clinician’s Guide, a first ever textbook on the subject. The event will also mark the 10th anniversary of LHRC, the Lesbian Health and Research Center at UCSF.  

The textbook, edited by LHRC co-directors Suzanne Dibble, DNSc, RN, and Dr. Patricia Robertson, gives the lesbian health movement “another big foundation to start to build on.  It’s a leap forward, definitely, in terms of recognition in the community and information about us” says Diane Sabin, executive director of LHRC.

The book, written primarily for clinicians, contains 31 chapters that cover a broad range of lesbian health issues and examines differences between lesbian and heterosexual health care.  

Dibble and Robertson hope lesbians in general will buy the book to inform both themselves and their doctors about their health and well-being, “I hope it will go viral and that every lesbian will give it to their health care provider” added Dibble.
