This year, we’ll be tackling a wide variety of topics, including information on specific health insurance plans, and common questions about transition-related care, with a specific focus on youth transition! We encourage any members of the transgender community, their loved ones, and health care workers who want to learn more about how to serve the LGBTQ community to attend.
