Gender Affirming Care

Accessing medical care can often present frustrating and undermining obstacles for the LGBTQ+ community. Transgender and non-binary individuals face gender and sexuality bias by healthcare providers, researchers, and electronic health records, a study found. Gender-affirming care, combined with mental health support, can help reduce risks by providing individuals with the tools, resources, and interventions needed to alleviate distress and promote a positive self-image.

As a step forward, transgender and non-binary researchers from across the United States and Canada describe how health record data can be modified to be more inclusive and representative of a gender-diverse population.

Dr. Alex Jimenez (He/Him) believes that individuals should be treated with dignity, respect and above all else, ensure that they receive the needed care like everyone else.
