Your Health Care Stories Needed
Personal stories from trans and gender nonconforming people about their experiences within our health care system are a powerful tool in helping to bring about change to the system. Our organization has been asked to play a role in collecting these stories by the Mayo Clinic GLBTI employee group, which is advocating for positive reforms in services and standards of care for transgender people within the Mayo Clinic. We are especially interested in receiving accounts of our community's positive and negative experiences from Mayo Clinic, but welcome stories from other providers and networks within the health care system as well. Next month, the Mayo Clinic GLBTI group will present a proposal to the body that oversees all Mayo clinic sites in MN, FL, AZ.
