What does your clinic do to make the space welcoming and inclusive for trans- and genderqueer-identified patients?
Please describe the ways in which you are involved in LGBTQ community outside of your practice (ex: Do you attend conferences on working with LGBTQ clients? Are you involved in local organizations that serve these communities? etc).
I am part of the transgender community (FTM). I regularly attend conference for trans health. I founded the Trans Health Project and the Transgender Health Fair through Verbena in the early 2000s, have worked for 15 years as an advocate for trans patients. I partnered with Gay City Health Project during that time working on prevention strategies and wellness promotion. I have designed and implemented LGBTQ health trainings with evaluations for health care providers and I designed a curriculum for the University of Washington School of Nursing to train nursing students (RNs, nurse practitioners, and researchers) in LGBTQ competencies. I have also been a social justice activist since the 1990s. This work includes access to safe abortions and birth control; workers' rights and economic justice work; confronting racism especially in regard to health disparities and confronting white privilege and white supremacy that gets played-out in health care institutions. I am presently part of the Ingersoll Prescribers' group. I am also in the Ingersoll Medical Providers Database.
What else do you want potential patients to know about you or your clinic?
Ballard and Capitol Hill locations have providers who are LGBTQ competent and experienced.
