At PROMO, our goal is to improve the health of LGBT Missourians through public education and better access to health care. In order to help improve health disparities in May of 2016 we launched Show-Me You, the largest LGBT Health Assessment in Missouri with over 3,000 Missourians participating.The results for the questionnaire are being released throughout Missouri during the Show-Me You tour, check to see if we are visiting you.
The Missouri Foundation for Health in responding to LGBT Health Disparities found that LGBT Missourians are more than twice as likely to not receive needed medical care or surgery compared to the general population.
Through a generous grant by the Missouri Foundation for Health and the support of individual donors, PROMO Fund and SAGE of PROMO Fund have teamed up to address the growing disparities found in health care for LGBT Missourians.
