Beyond a Gendered Binary: Trans and Gender Diverse Experiences of Health Care in Michigan

Ann Arbor MI 11-18-2019 11-18-2019

Trans, nonbinary, and other gender diverse individuals experience incredible rates of health disparities, from higher rates of mental health diagnoses to actively being denied needed health care, all as a result of living in a transphobic world. Health providers and public health professionals need a deeper understanding of the diverse ways that gender exists in order to provider more affirming and effective care, as well as to think about how to measure the experiences of this population. Dr. Kattari (she/her) and Dr. Roosevelt (she/her) will give an introduction to trans and gender diverse identities, as well as share research findings from the Michigan Trans Health Survey, and ongoing sexual and eproductive health photovoice groups among trans and nonbinary individuals in the Detroit metro area.
