Navigating Gender-Affirming Care in MA

On September 8th and 10th, My Ombudsman, in collaboration with Fenway Health, Health Law Advocates, and Trans Resistance MA, will be hosting a virtual two-part series on Gender Affirming Healthcare. This event hopes to guide Trans and Gender-diverse individuals here in Massachusetts through the health care system in order to make gender affirming care more easily accessible and navigable. This two-part series will give information on how to access gender affirming care, where to go for your healthcare needs, what a safe and healthy doctor’s visit looks like, navigating your healthcare benefits, and an overview of your healthcare rights. It can be hard to navigate gender affirming healthcare alone, so we’re here to help. We are excited to share the resources Massachusetts has available in order to ensure that anyone who wants access to gender affirming care can get it.
