The Fenway Institute and Harvard Medical School Continuing Education are pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2020 Advancing Excellence in Transgender Health Conference. The conference will take place virtually from October 17th to October 19thYou can register here. Please also share this email with anyone you think may be interested.

This conference is designed to train the whole health care team in providing responsive and confident gender-affirming health care, grounded in research evidence and best clinical practices. Sessions are led by expert faculty specialized in transgender-focused research and patient care. The conference is appropriate for all members of health care teams, including physicians, behavioral health care providers, physician assistants, nurses, and other staff.

This year we are also offering an optional half-day pre-conference training from 1pm-5:30pm ET on October 16th. This training will review the basics of transgender health care and will cover terminology, health disparities faced by transgender and gender-diverse people in both primary care and behavioral health care, and include case discussions. If you are new to this care, we suggest you attend this training. It is at no-cost (with conference registration) and open to the first 50 people who register.

While this year’s course will be offered virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all the same great content will be provided and we are using a virtual web platform that will allow for additional opportunities such as virtual networking.
