Health and Well-being of Transgender Individuals

May 26, 2020

Presented by Daniel Puneky, MD

In this course, we will review the appropriate pronouns and language to use when addressing transgender individuals and discuss the role of the social determinants of health (social, economic, physical, environments, etc.) in leading to poorer mental and physical health outcomes for transgender individuals. Next, we will define systematic and structural violence and identify how those affect health outcomes of transgender individuals. Lastly, as a group, we will evaluation areas of need in the transgender population and the role of FSP teams.
