Building on the first two parts of GLMA’s cultural competence webinar series exploring the health concerns and healthcare of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, Part 3 will focus on clinical skills for the care of transgender individuals, including behavioral health. The webinar will be framed using GLMA’s Top Ten Things Transgender Persons Should Discuss with their Health Providers, an evidence-based patient education resource. During this 90 minute webinar, the presenters will provide clinical best practices on salient health issues for the transgender population.
