Dr. Freund maintains a solo practice at Franklin Family Practice, in Des Moines, IA, where he sees a large gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) patient base. For the past eight years, Dr. Freund has been educating policymakers, the public, and his colleagues on basic cultural competency, barriers to care, and specific health issues and disparities for the GLBT community.
