Creating Integrated Healthcare Services Part 2
From Jeff Layne
Jacke Humphrey-Straub, MSW, Director of Programs
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.
