Our goals are twofold, to increase the number of health professionals across the care continuum who feel comfortable and confident providing quality care for trans* patients, as well as to increase trans* community members’ knowledge, self-efficacy, and advocacy skills through educational sessions and connection to community resources. This all day, 8-hour conference, includes three tracks: medical, behavioral health and community with some shared programming. CME and CE credits will be offered for all health and behavioral health professionals that attend.
