UCSF National Transgender Health Summit ~ November 10-12, 2017

Posted by on November 10, 2017

This weekend I’m at UCSF’s National Transgender Health Summit, a biennial conference here in Oakland, CA. This morning I presented at the mental health provider pre-conference on topics related to addressing provider bias, cultural concerns, histories of trans health and gatekeeping, and the mental health provider role. It’s wonderful to be able to connect and learn with providers among so many different health disciplines (primary care, mental health, ob/gyn, social work, surgery) who are committed to serving trans clients/patients.

Here are the topics I’ll be presenting on for the remainder of the weekend:

Sunday, November 12, 2017, 10:15 AM – 11:45 AM: Centering Trans/GNC Voices in the Mainstreaming of Trans Healthcare (Jules Chyten-Brennan, DO, Sand Chang, PhD, Jess Guerriero, MSW, MA, Jenna Rapues, MPH, and Zil Goldstein)
