Article on Care for Trans Youth Features Dr. Keuroghlian and the National LGBT Health Education Center

Dr. Alex Keuroghlian, Director of Education and Training Programs, is interviewed in this new Healio article titled "Pediatricians play ‘critical’ role in care of transgender youths."

Dr. Keuroghlian mentions that "it is not part of standard training for most physicians, but medical schools around the country are trying to implement instruction in transgender care into the curriculum," and highlights that "you want to incorporate, wherever appropriate, a more expansive and accurate understanding of sex assigned at birth, gender identity, gender expression, an understanding of concepts and terminology, stigma and gender minority stress, and how that’s related to health inequities experienced by transgender and gender-diverse people and best practices with regard to sensitive, effective communication, clinical practice and specific specialties like internal medicine, surgery and psychiatry, for example."
