LGBTQIA+ and Allies Engagement Group Actions

The FDA recently released a proposed rule that would eliminate menthol cigarettes and all flavors in cigars. Eliminating menthol in cigarettes and all flavors in cigars will save lives and prevent future generations from using tobacco in the LGBTQ+ community.

Even though U.S. breast and cervical cancer death rates have been declining for several decades, not all people have benefited equally from advances in prevention, early detection, and treatments. LGBTQ+ people are more likely to be uninsured, lack access to health care, and delay health care including critical screenings. The NBCCEDP (National Breast & Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program) provides timely access to breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to low-income, uninsured, and underinsured people in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 6 U.S. territories, and 13 tribes.
