Clinical psychotherapist; founder and executive director, National LGBT Cancer Network
Liz Margolies, L.C.S.W. is the founder and executive director of the National LGBT Cancer Network, the first national program addressing the needs of all LGBT people with cancer and those at risk. Founded in late 2007, the Network's mission is to educate the LGBT community about our increased cancer risks and the importance of screening/early detection; train health care providers to offer more culturally sensitive, safe, and welcoming care to LGBT patients; and advocate for LGBT inclusion in cancer research, media, and national organizations. In addition to her cancer work, Liz is a psychotherapist in private practice in New York City, specializing in trauma, loss, health disparities, and sexuality.
