Transgender Awareness

Looking to improve your health center’s ability to provide high-quality care for transgender and gender-diverse patients? Harvard Pilgrim Health Care would like to make providers aware of an educational program for health centers aimed at increasing the availability of culturally responsible, comprehensive primary care for transgender and gender diverse patients.

Beginning in January 2022, Rural TransECHO and the Fenway Institute are offering a program specifically for health centers that are located in or serve predominantly rural U.S. communities. Approximately 20-25 centers will be accepted into the program, which offers the centers the opportunity to learn from experts and peers on ways to improve health services and patient outcomes for transgender and gender diverse patients. The program has curriculum tracks for both clinical and frontline staff and consists of 12 two-hour sessions held virtually over the course of a year. Participants can access more than 100 on-demand webinars and earn CME/CEU and HRC HEI credits. Visit the Rural TransEcho application page for more information or to apply.
