Proactive change to meet the needs of marginalized populations, including those of sexual and racial minorities, is urgently needed. Current events continue to highlight inequities in health due to systemic problems and both conscious and unconscious biases. This series aims to provide clinical knowledge and skills to identify the needs of such underserviced populations, identify and address barriers to care, and create change through self-awareness, modification of practices and subsequent systemic cultural shifts.
The OPA welcomes you to join us for two evenings to listen and learn.
Session I: Transcending Barriers: Improving Access to Care for Trans-Identified Individuals
Dr. Albina Veltman
