Get queer-ed!

Patients who are trans or gender diverse all too frequently face discrimination in primary healthcare settings. Most healthcare providers didn't get adequate training to offer hormonal therapy or adjunctive naturopathic care to patients needing hormonal therapies or undergoing transitions.

This course gives you guidelines, protocols, and resources to help you better support your trans and gender diverse patients.
