Transgender Patient Care
Transgender is a term for individuals whose gender identity or behavior does not conform to that associated with the sex to which they were assigned at birth. It’s difficult to estimate the number of transgender individuals, primarily because there are no population studies that accurately account for the range of gender identity and gender expression. What common health risks do transgender patients face? How does healthcare screening and preventive strategies differ in transgender patients who have been on hormonal therapy? Today we’re joined by Dr. Caroline Davidge-Pitts, an Endocrinologist and a core member of the Transgender and Intersex Specialty Care group at Mayo Clinic. For more information, join us in Washington D.C., Oct 4 – 6 at the Principles in the Care of Transgender and Intersex Patients 2018 Conference.
