Now and throughout the year, we celebrate the beauty, diversity and resilience of the transgender community. We acknowledge the disproportionate toll of violence perpetrated against transgender people of color, and particularly transgender women of color, and recognize the urgent need for ongoing action to combat bigotry and support the rights of all people to live authentically.

Our Commitment

We are committed to providing confidentiality and personalized, multidisciplinary care that addresses each individual’s unique needs. This includes providing compassionate staff that have specialized gender topic training and that promote an accepting and respectful environment, while also using patient preferred names and pronouns.

We stand with our Endocrine Society colleagues in condemning the recent order by Texas governor Greg Abbott that would classify evidence based medical therapy for transgender youth as abuse.  Please visit here for further information.
