5 (2 votes)

Sexual and gender minorities people often face discrimination and harassment due to their sexual orientation and gender identity, and this population has been identified as at risk for "health disparity" by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities. The hepatology care of transgender and gender non-binary people can be complicated, given the involvement of gender-affirming therapy, psychosocial stress, and even legal challenges. In this session, we will discuss basic knowledge about transgender patients and how to provide the best hepatology care for them.
