  • Overview

    Past research tells us that many young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender patients are at higher risk for health problems, such as depression, substance abuse, and sexually transmitted diseases. We're also learning that the response of the young person's family can trigger or worsen these conditions. Dr. Sten Vermund, professor of pediatrics, medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, joins host Dr. Jennifer Shu to explore how physicians can work with families and patients to create a healthy dynamic as patients begin to express their sexual orientation and gender identity.
