Gender-affirming care, Adolescent medicine, Reproductive health
I have been providing gender-affirming care for over a decade and am lucky to co-direct the Child and Adolescent Trans/Gender Center for Health (CATCH) at BMC. At CATCH, we offer
family education and support, individual therapeutic support, access to onsite hormone blockers (both injections and implants), gender-affirming hormone therapy, and referrals as needed. Treatment plans are customized based on individual patient and family goals. At CATCH, we know that every patient and family is different. Our job isn’t to tell patients what they need to do. Our job is to listen. Youth and families tell us what they need. We help them to get there.
