Affirmative and inclusive care is incredibly important to Cache Valley Chiropractic and we are taking steps to ensure all people feel welcome.
Inclusion and accessibility are part of Cache Valley Chiropractic core values because healthcare is for everyone. Our goal is for all patients to receive quality chiropractic care.
LGTBQIA2S+ is an acronym for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and/or questioning, intersex, asexual, two-spirit, and the many other affirmative ways in which people self-identify (https://mhpl.shortgrass.ca/blog/lgbtqia2s-what-does-it-all-mean).
Health disparities are preventable differences in disease in disadvantaged populations. There are six major disparities in health for LGBTQIA2S+ people. They are sexually transmitted infections, substance use and abuse, mental health conditions, breast and cervical cancers, eating disorders, and heart disease. This is not okay and being LBGTQIA2S+ should not change how severe an illness is.
Equal access to health care and non-judgmental healthcare providers helps reduce these disparities.
Our office is a welcoming and safe space for everyone because health disparities are unacceptable. Everyone should have access to high-quality compassionate healthcare.
