Trans, Non-binary, and Intersex Healthcare Best Practices Program
In 2020, SAGA Community Center began developing a Best Medical Practices training program to address the health disparities & lack of access to competent care, specifically for trans, non-binary, & intersex people. This program, led by LGBT+ people, medical professionals, and medical students, seeks to improve access to healthcare for LGBT+ people by ensuring that medical professionals gain the necessary information, training, & tools to adequately deliver proper care to LGBT+ patients. The program will also improve access to competent medical care by linking individuals to trained providers through an online, searchable database. Our program will increase the health & well-being LGBT+ communities by removing gaps in medical care and reducing the barriers that trans, non-binary, and intersex patients often encounter when seeking care.
