A Comprehensive Look at TransAging Issues

August 25, 2012 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

A workshop led by Loree Cook-Daniels for providers.

 


SouthEastern Transgender Health Summit
Providing Access, Promoting Wellness
Asheville, NC

The overarching goal of the SouthEastern Transgender Health Summit (SETHS) is to increase the awareness of need, and to improve the quality and accessibility of culturally competent care for those who identify as transgender. The IOM report follows a life course approach to care needs and clinical challenges. The clinical track of SETHS models this same approach with individual sessions on pediatric, primary and geriatric care. However, the IOM report notes a need to “also advance the public’s understanding about the health of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.” With that in mind, the planners offer non-clinical tracks for business and community leaders, human  resource professionals, educators, advocates and self-advocates. The plenary sessions are open to all, and participants are encouraged to select for themselves those track sessions which best address their individual educational needs and interests.
