Advancing Gender-Affirming Care: From Education to Legislation
March 23, 2023 @ 8:00 pm–9:00 pm EDT
Gender-Affirming Care (GAC) is necessary, evidence-based, and life-saving medical treatment. However, access to it is not guaranteed across the country and is being constantly threatened. According to the Trans Legislation Tracker, there are currently more than 400 anti-transgender bills that have been introduced across the country. Many of these directly affect how physicians are able to practice, thus impacting the patient-doctor relationship. Join Doctors For America on March 23rd at 8 pm ET to learn from a panel of experts on how to improve access to GAC for your patients and engage in advocacy on a local and state level.
- Learn how physicians and trainees can get involved in protecting access to Gender-Affirming Care
- Understand key legislative challenges currently surrounding GAC in several states and the key groups engaged in advocacy efforts
- Highlight successful strategies for improving and expanding GAC with your medical school, residency program, or institution
- Identify effective resources and talking points for engaging with colleagues, legislators, and media when advocating for GAC
