Creating Integrated Healthcare Services Part 1
From Jeff Layne on October 28th, 2016
MSW, Director of Programs
Gender Health Center
Transgender individuals face barriers when trying to access healthcare services. Those barriers are described during this presentation. As a possible solution to this problem, Mr. Hudson and Ms. Humphrey-Straub use a case study of the Gender Health Center, located in Sacramento. This organization represents a grassroots effort to create a healthcare model that addresses the needs of transgender individuals. The Center provides mental health counseling, peer support groups, advocacy, a legal clinic, a hormone prescription clinic, a respite program, and training and education.
