Equitable Care: Gender-Affirming Care
Part 2 of our 2-part series on Gender-Affirming Care will focus on supporting clinical and admin teams in creating gender-affirming spaces for their patients, and unpacking bias within the infrastructure that does not readily create a safe space for this kind of work.
Sean Johnson, LSWAIC (He/They) is the program director of the Transgender and Gender Non-Binary Health Program in the Office of Health Equity at UW Medicine.
Sarah Fadich, PA-C, is a transgender woman and physician assistant in the department of surgery at Kaiser Permanente in Bellevue, WA. She is starting medical school this fall with the intention of specializing in gender affirming surgery.
