Hormone Replacement Therapy, Adolescent and Young Adult Health
I am a pediatrician and Adolescent Medicine specialist in the Child and Adolescent Gender Services and the Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine clinics at the University of Michigan. I work with LGBTQ youth frequently in my practice, providing hormone replacement therapy to transgender/gender diverse youth and more broadly providing supportive, inclusive physical and mental health care to my adolescent/young adult patients. I have received WPATH-sponsored training on best practices for medical care of transgender youth, and have given trainings at the local and national level on inclusive health care for transgender youth. I am a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Section on LGBT Health and Wellness and the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine’s LGBTQI Special Interest Group.
