Spotlight On Upcoming Transgender Health Events

By December 21, 2015 Fenway Health Newsroom

Fenway Health’s Transgender Health Program is excited to announce the first scheduled events on its 2016 community programming calendar. Our Transgender Health team is dedicated to providing access to high-quality, informed care for trans women, trans men, genderqueer, gender nonconforming, non-binary individuals, affirmed men and women, people with trans histories, and anyone with health needs unique to their diverse gender expressions and identities. These regular workshops, seminars, and forums are a part of that commitment to the health of our transgender community.

Please note that all Transgender Health events take place on the 9th floor of our 1340 Boylston Street location, unless otherwise noted.

On Tuesday, January 5, we will be hosting a panel and Q&A on Trans Feminine Reproductive Options. The program will run from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, with light refreshments until 6:30. The panelists will take the stage at 6:30, and the presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A.

The Trans Feminine Reproductive Options panel is comprised of experts in transgender health and reproductive health, including Dr. Samuel Pang, MD, Medical Director at IVF New England and Reproductive Endocrinologist; Julie Thompson, PA from Fenway Health; and Samantha York, who will share a personal narrative.

Please join us on Tuesday, February 16 for Health and Hormones: Protocols, Questions, and Controversies from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. This will be a conversation with Fenway’s Medical Director for Transgender Health, Timothy Cavanaugh, MD, and Transgender Health Patient Advocate Cei Lambert. We welcome all trans-identified people, as well as their loved ones and allies, to join this important discussion.

In this workshop, we will present information on the health implications and considerations for transgender people engaged in hormone treatment. The focus of the presentation will be on how providers assess people’s readiness for hormones, the health benefits and risks of hormone therapy, and tips for maintaining optimal health while taking hormones throughout the lifespan. The workshop is intended to increase understanding about the various hormone options, administration choices, dosage considerations, and potential changes to body and mode of hormone treatments. Light snacks will be provided.

Do you want to present yourself in a way that more closely aligns with your gender identity, but aren’t sure of how to get started? On Tuesday, March 22 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, we will be hosting Dress to Impress: What to Wear to Look and Feel Your Best. This workshop on fashion, presentation, and personal expression is open to anyone who would like some tips on how to express your gender identity in an authentic way that both looks and feels great. We’ll be exploring stylish options for feminine, masculine, and non-binary identified individuals.

Christine Andrade of HAIR by Christine & Co will be joining us to demonstrate techniques for hair and makeup for trans feminine folks. During this workshop, we will discuss ways to do hair, apply makeup, tie a bow tie and necktie, and dress your best. This will be a fun and interactive workshop, and we encourage you to bring a couple items or ideas that you would like to try on or test out! Light snacks will be provided.
