A Project ECHO
Gender diverse patients face significant barriers to receiving adequate healthcare. The aim of the Seattle Children’s Gender Clinic’s Project ECHO is to increase participant knowledge and self-efficacy regarding best-practice care for gender diverse youth in order to improve the healthcare experiences of gender diverse youth and improve access to gender-affirming care.
Series I – March through August 2022 – focuses on a wide range of topics including affirming clinical environment, supporting families and schools, mental health, and social transition.
Series II will run from September 2022 through February 2023, focusing on medical topics including puberty blockers, masculinizing treatments, and feminizing treatments.
Registration for Series II is now open. You can register for Series II regardless of participation in Series I.
