In 2011, the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) released the report, The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People: Building a Foundation for Better Understanding, highlighting numerous gaps in health research across the life course of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) populations. This report also included an overview of multiple health inequities among LGBT populations compared with heterosexuals, including higher rates of chronic disease (e.g., heart disease, some cancers, obesity), mental health (e.g., suicide ideation, depression, anxiety), and social environmental health (e.g., violence, discrimination, social exclusion) concerns.
