Mark has several years of personal experience navigating the health barriers facing diverse populations, especially with creating safe spaces that are inclusive and respectful to all. Being in recovery himself from alcohol for over 14 years has given him a unique perspective on the challenges facing an LGBTQ+ individual seeking addiction treatment.
