Understanding and Assessing the Sexual Health of Transgender Patients

In this webinar, Dr. Tim Cavanaugh, Medical Director of Fenway Health’s Transgender Health Program, will lead a discussion on how clinicians can provide effective sexual health care, including HIV prevention, for transgender and gender nonconforming people. The webinar will include videos of leaders in the transgender community who describe their perceptions of what high quality care means to them and ways in which providers can offer sexual health care and HIV prevention that is based on trust and understanding.

In the U.S., about three million parents are LGBT people, and many more desire to become parents. In this webinar, Kim Bergman, PhD and Ethan Brackett, MD will discuss ways in which health care providers can assist same-sex couples and other LGBT patients in their pursuit of becoming parents. The speakers will touch on the often complex clinical and mental health aspects related to the process of adoption, fostering, surrogacy, and donor insemination. This webinar is the second in a two-part series with the Family Equality Council. To watch the first webinar “on demand,” click here.
