Gender-affirming care, including social, psychological, behavioral, and medical interventions, is supportive healthcare that affirms a person’s gender identity when it conflicts with their assigned birth gender. Though proven to result in overwhelmingly positive outcomes, such as reducing suicide ideation and attempts, gender-affirming care access can be hard to come by, especially in primary care settings. In this episode, Kate Steinle, nurse practitioner, chief clinical officer at FOLX Health, and former Planned Parenthood employee, discusses ways to break down the barriers to gender-affirming care and expand access to patients.
