Gender-Affirming Care and Supporting Transgender Communities

Gender-affirming care reduces stress, improves mental health, and closes health disparities that frequently affect gender diverse populations. This training will speak to the harms that come from a lack of gender-affirming care, and how medical institutions have historically reinforced deterministic gendered practices. In this two-part training participants will learn how gender influences healthcare and health status, the importance of gender-inclusive language and care, and how to apply gender affirming care best practices.
