SouthEastern Transgender Health Summit (SETHS)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

Access to healthcare is a basic human right. Currently, most transgender patients face many barriers to accessing appropriate health care. The majority of medical providers have not been trained to provide culturally competent care for transgender patients. The ACGME has recognized the need to include training in transgender care as an essential component of comprehensive medical curricula. However, there are few training programs to meet this need.

Conference Description: The Southeastern Transgender Health Summit (SETHS) aims to provide relevant, evidence-based education for medical, behavioral health providers, and community members in order to increase access to care and improve the quality of the care currently available for their transgender patients. This conference will focus on medical and behavioral health care across the lifespan from adolescence through older adulthood. In addition to the clinical and behavioral healthcare tracks, a community track will focus on the needs of the patient, providing healthcare resources, how to access those resources, and how to advocate for positive health outcomes.
