Emerging science shows that gender identity has a durable biological underpinning that needs to be considered in policy decisions. Our position statement and Clinical Practice Guideline are setting the tone of the debate. As thought leaders on gender incongruence, we want to ensure transgender individuals have equal access to medical care and insurance coverage. We also are pushing for additional research into transgender health and treatment options.

We offer educational resources for healthcare providers who want more training in how to care for this population, a clinical education module, an educational slide deck, and a guideline pocket card.
