Advancing Excellence in Transgender Health was developed in response to the high volume of queries from clinicians and health care staff seeking to learn about providing high-quality care for adults, adolescents, and children who are questioning their gender identity or who identify as transgender or gender-diverse (TGD).

This conference is designed to train the whole health care team in providing responsive and confident gender-affirmative health care, grounded in research evidence and best clinical practices. Sessions are led by expert faculty specialized in TGD focused research and patient care. The conference is appropriate for all members of health care teams, including physicians, behavioral health care providers, physician assistants, nurses, and other staff.

Conference topics will include:

  • Gender Affirmative Health Care
  • Unconscious and Implicit Bias
  • Considerations for TGD Providers Caring for TGD Patients
  • Gender-Affirming Hormone Therapy
  • Behavioral Health Care
  • Primary and Preventative Health Needs
  • PrEP and HIV Prevention
  • Puberty Blockers and Hormone Therapy for Youth
  • Trauma-Informed Care
  • Transgender Legal Issues
  • Collecting Gender Identity Data
  • And more!

In addition to didactic presentations, attendees will learn from panels of TGD community members and have the opportunity to engage in interactive case discussions that highlight medical and behavioral health approaches to gender-affirmative care, led by experienced clinicians specialized in TGD health.
