The Doctor Is In (Virtually!): Transgender Health & Aging

March 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

Our healthcare system has often failed to provide appropriate and effective care for transgender individuals, contributing to many health disparities and unique health needs affecting transgender older adults. Transgender elders report higher rates of disability, depression, and general poor health than do their cisgender peers. Finding trans-affirming care can be especially challenging as one grows older and may have to rely on a greater number of healthcare specialists to provide care for age-related health conditions.

Join the Elder Initiative, Jefferson Health, and the Arcila-Adams Transgender Resource Center for this month’s “Doctor Is In” webinar to learn about transgender health and aging. We will discuss common health issues that impact transgender elders as well as considerations related to cancer screenings, hormone therapies, and navigating the healthcare system as an older adult.
