Transgender Health: Focus on Gender Identity & Inclusivity

Class Details

Summary: 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 are excited to announce the second webinar in the NNLM Transgender Health series. With approximately 1 million adults in the U.S. identifying as Transgender/Gender Non-Binary (TGNB), less than one percent of physicians fall within this number, and the number continually decreases when surveying medical students, with a mere 0.7 percent identifying as TGNB (Dimant et.al.)

Join us on Monday, April 5th, 2021, 11am - 12pm PT / 2-3pm ET to learn about the importance of representation and advocacy for and by TGNB individuals in the healthcare system.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
