Education is Power

our mission statement

"To provide state of the art medical information to mental health and licensed allied professionals, nursing and medical students including support staff that addresses  culturally sensitive care and treatment for the transgender and gender non-conforming community"

~

We began our journey over 10 years ago as it became more and more evident that the scarcity of health professionals trained in transgender medical and behavioral health was of minimal availability to those in our transgender communities.

We asked ourselves what would it take and how could we work together to reduce barriers to care when we did not have enough competent providers to provide assistance? 

In order to address those needs our first step was to prepare our provider community and front line staff with culturally sensitive information and education to eliminate assumptions, improve communication and create a more affirming environment.  Using this as our focus we began to create state of the art learning sessions designed to meet the health care needs of transgender people.

 

Today through workshops and conferences we have stayed committed to providing not only competent but proficient education to our medical, mental health professionals, students, allied health providers, and our front line staff in the field of transgender heath care through interactive opportunities.
