Treating Trans Patients: Containing Complexity and Embracing Embodiment

  Presenter: Susan C. Vaughan, MD

Susan Vaughan will explore “lessons learned” from her years in clinical practice at the edges of this transformation of our view of gender. In addition, she will discuss WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health) Guidelines for health professionals to assist transsexual, transgender, and gender nonconforming people with safe and effective pathways to achieving lasting personal comfort with their gendered selves. The seminar will end with a case presentation to further illustrate an affirming standard of care.
