Living with Narcolepsy - LGBTQIA+


The LGBTQIA+ groups for people with narcolepsy meets on Fridays and offers a share space for attendees to bring their most pressing concerns as people living with narcolepsy who are also part of the LGBTQIA+ community. The group offers a peer-to-peer platform for those struggling with isolation, symptom management, support, health and for those seeking ways to become advocates.
