This textbook is an invaluable resource to all clinicians who care for transgender & gender diverse adults.” Dr. Jennifer Potter, Co-Chair of The Fenway Institute at Fenway Health, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School added, “Medical providers have a responsibility to be familiar with the most up-to-date scientific & clinical information & they can find all of that information & more in this guide, which highlights key aspects of gender identity emergence across the lifespan & provides much-needed guidance on both hormonal & surgical gender affirmation.” Sari L. Reisner, Sc.D, Director of Transgender Health Research at The Fenway Institute, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School & Director of Transgender Research at Brigham & Women’s Hospital concluded, “We have long known that transgender & gender diverse adults experience health care disparities largely rooted in stigma, including acts of discrimination that take place in health care settings.
