Mark your calendars! One of iTech’s PIs, Dr. Nadia Dowshen, is speaking at the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) on 12/6 at 1pm ET. The seminar is titled “Improving the Health and Well-being of Young Transgender Women – Intersections of research, policy and practice.”
This event is presented as part of the ORWH Women’s Health Seminar Series, and features Nadia Dowshen, M.D., M.S.H.P., co-founder and medical director of the Gender and Sexuality Development Clinic at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
Dr. Dowshen will review her research describing HIV-related and other health inequities faced by young transgender women. She also will discuss how these data have been used to inform policy and develop a successful multidisciplinary model of clinical care for transgender children and adolescents. At the end of this seminar, attendees will be able to:
- Describe HIV-related and other health challenges faced by young transgender women
- Identify potential policy solutions to health inequities faced by young transgender women
- Summarize components of a successful program model to support the health and well-being of transgender youth
This seminar will introduce a new series of webinars—set to launch in February 2019—that will focus on the effects of sex and gender influences among women who are understudied, underrepresented, and underreported—the U3 population—in interdisciplinary research in the United States.
