A little more about everyone's favorite D-Lister...

Emmy nominated Chicago native, Griffin, a multi-faceted performer with a rapid fire wit, is probably best known for her four-year stint on the NBC sitcom “Suddenly Susan” as Vickie Groener, Brooke Shields’ acerbic colleague.

After moving west and joining the famed Los Angeles Groundlings comedy improvisational troupe, Kathy began building her resume with guest starring roles on such series as “ER” and “Seinfeld” – where she created recurring character Sally Weaver.

After her various TV guest spots, Kathy began gaining notice as a stand-up comedienne and landed her own “HBO Half Hour Comedy Special.” In 1998, HBO gave Kathy her own One-Hour Special, “A Hot Cup of Talk.”

Kathy has supplied voices for characters on the animated series “Dilbert” and “The Simpsons,” and she appeared in a dual role on the “X-Files” as well as in Eminem’s video, “The Real Slim Shady,” which was co-directed by Dr. Dre.

Kathy has co-hosted The Billboard Music Awards three years in a row and appeared on numerous talk shows including “Late Night with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Howard Stern” and “The View,” as well as having been featured in the films “It’s Pat” and “Four Rooms” among others.

Kathy has a great passion for reality TV. She took part in and won “Celebrity Mole” on ABC, and then hosted the NBC reality series “Average Joe” as well as the MTV series, “Kathy’s So-Called Reality.”

Kathy has performed two very successful stand-up specials for Bravo. The first in 2005 called “Kathy Griffin….Is Not Nicole Kidman” and the second in May of 2006 called “Strong Black Woman.” Kathy’s DVD stand-up special “Allegedly” is in stores now.

In August 2005 Kathy’s reality show, “Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List,” debuted on Bravo to rave reviews. The second season of “Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List” has just been nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program. The third season of “Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List” premiered in June of this year.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
