Please join the Network of the National Library of Medicine Pacific Southwest at the UCLA Biomedical Library and Southeastern Atlantic Region at the University of Maryland-Baltimore for our Transgender Health webinar series. With approximately 1 million adults in the U.S. identifying as Transgender and/or Gender Non-Binary (TGNB), this population experiences violence, inequities, biases, and discrimination on many levels. Less than one percent of physicians and 0.7 percent of medical students identify as TGNB, underscoring the need for quality, affirmative healthcare. These three webinars focus on the social determinants of health that create the backbone of health disparities and the resiliency this community holds. Click on the link to register.
