Health Disparity in the Transgender Community

Title:   Health Disparity within The Transgender Community

Date: January 21, 2016

Presenter:  Beck Gee-Cohen, MA LADC

Individuals who identify as transgender are at greater risk of health disparity. Understanding that gender is not binary is vital to helping clients receive appropriate services. Helping those who do not subscribe to the gender binary and those who are questioning gender is an important consideration for public health professionals in order to provide affirmative services to an underserved population. This webinar will help providers grasp concepts of gender outside the binary, allow providers to identify key elements in helping the Trans population, and create understanding the diversity of the Trans community in receiving health and wellness services.
