- June 4, 2021
A local pediatrician is raising awareness about important terms to know, understand and use appropriately when interacting with the LGBTQ+ community.
Montefiore pediatrician Dr. Lauren Roth sees patients, is an assistant professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and teaches residents who are training to become pediatricians. Dr. Roth says, "I have been really working to try to train future pediatricians in the right terminology to use, how to make your environment a safe space so your patients feel comfortable talking to you about it."
