This is an article written by Marisa Torrieri (@maritorri) for Physicians Practice (@PhysiciansPract) based on her passion and interest in including the stories of LGBT physicians in this publication.
My story is included as is this quote, that sums it up for me:
Today, healthcare organizations such as Kaiser Permanente are setting a new tone.
