Affirming Healthcare for Transgender and Gender Diverse West Virginians
Megan E. Gandy, PhD, MSW, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV.
This presentation will begin by covering basic definitions of gender identity and expression and will identify health disparities faced by transgender and gender diverse people. Then, the presentation will cover resources and best practices for social workers in the field. The presentation will also offer an opportunity for social workers to examine their own biases towards transgender and gender diverse individuals so that they may become more aware of their individual educational needs beyond this short presentation.
