Description: As a community of healthcare information professionals, it is vital that we understand and are able to address the individual health needs of the dynamic communities around us in order to provide them with the resources they may need. In this webinar, participants will discuss demographic trends in the United States transgender community, learn to contrast sexual orientation and gender identity, and look into the biology of gender identity. Mental health, healthcare barriers, surgical treatment, and state policies as they pertain to this community will also be addressed.
