"One of the ongoing medical challenges in our state is delivering quality care for patients who don’t live anywhere near a major metropolitan area of the commonwealth," Davis said. "Now imagine if you’re LGBTQ in a rural county and need to find a doctor or pharmacist.  What sort of barriers might you face?"

 

The interview with Guest is part of WUKY's recognition of Pride month as well as Elder Abuse Awareness month.
