On October 16–19, 2020, The Division of Education and Training at The Fenway Institute hosted the 6th annual Advancing Excellence in Transgender Health Conference. This year’s conference was held virtually and saw a record number of 578 registrants from 46 US states, Puerto Rico, Belgium, Canada, Mexico, Pakistan, the Philippines, Portugal, and Singapore.
This year the conference also included an optional half-day pre-conference for those seeking additional training on the basics of gender-affirming care before the start of the general conference. The conference agenda included a variety of sessions on important topics such as ‘creating an inclusive and affirming environment,’ ‘gender-affirming hormone therapy,’ ‘behavioral health care for transgender and gender-diverse youth and adolescents’ and ‘collecting gender identity data in EHRs.’ The conference also featured four community panels.
Attendees were also able to network with each other and the speakers through Q&A sessions, virtual networking events and 1:1 private messaging in the conference platform.
We thank all the speakers who presented and the staff who helped make it such a successful event.
