Trans & Gender Diverse Healthcare

Are you a member of a primary healthcare team (physician, nurse practitioner, psychologist, social worker or registered nurse)?

Are you working with clients who have transition-related goals, including hormone replacement therapy and gender-affirming surgeries?

Do you want to connect with and learn from other healthcare providers who are also doing this work?

If so, please join this ECHO, which aims to provide a trans-affirming space for healthcare providers to learn from one another about medical transition, with a focus on supporting clients towards gender-affirming surgeries.
