I love that the US Department of Health and Human Services is hosting this webinar (as part of Healthy People 2020): Spotlight on LGBT Health: Transgender Health Issues. If your knowledge of how to best assess and care for transgender patients is lacking, this looks like it will help fill the gap. The webinar will be held May 8th from 1-2:30 EDT. You can register here.
