The overall objective of the one hour workshop, “Supporting Gender Diverse and Transgender Youth in the Healthcare Setting” is to improve awareness and care of gender diverse and transgender youth in the healthcare setting. During this workshop, PFLAG leaders will share personal stories, present culturally relevant LGBTQ terminology, identify social and health challenges and barriers to care, discuss strategies and steps to providing affirming care, and share local and national resources.
