Episode 16: Transgender Health Care

Emergency Medicine, Podcast

First, apologies for the delay in this episode! We’ve got a 2-month-old at home and it turns out, those little amazing terrorists take a lot of time!

On this episode, host Jason Woods speaks to Dr. Natalie Nokoff, a pediatric endocrinologist who works with transgender patients. The discussion centers on the health care needs of these patients, preferred language, safety, and how to approach the discussion of gender in our population.
