In the first episode of our second season you can learn about transgender and gender diverse care from a health care provider’s perspective. Dr. Michelle Collins-Ogle joins Bruce to discuss her experience providing gender affirming care to her transgender and gender diverse patients. They talk about what makes up gender-affirming care, the misconceptions around it, what it isn’t, and all the ways it can be applied in a health care setting. As well, they cover the ways that being transgender can affect the type of health care a person can access.  You’ll find out more about a variety of topics, including the definitions of cisgender, transgender, gender diverse and gender fluid; the history of transgender people in the United States; and how to help people feel comfortable in the space they are in.
