The trans and non-binary community experiences alarming disparities in mental health and primary care due to sociopolitical violence and discrimination that often extends into the clinic. Join us for a discussion on how providers are advocating within their institutions to provide gender-affirming healthcare, commit to community-based research, and invest in transgender health education. What challenges do physicians face within their institutions and within the trans community, and how are they partnering with legal teams to expand equitable access to healthcare for trans patients?
