1. Community Voices Panel: Impact of Identities on Healthcare Access - Behavioral Health Track, Medical Track and Public Health Track
Moderator: Michele D. Paliotta, LICSW

Transgender and non-binary patients hold additional identities which can act as barriers or facilitators of receiving quality health care. The purpose of this session is to increase awareness among providers and public health professionals of the intersectional ways that transgender and non-binary community members’ identities interact with their experience of accessing healthcare.  During this session panelists will be invited to share how their various identities in terms of race, ethnicity, education, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc. have influenced their experiences of accessing physical and behavioral health care.  Panelists will provide feedback on how public health and health care professionals can improve health care access and experiences for transgender and non-binary patients from varied backgrounds.

- Describe three ways that transgender and non-binary patients may experience additional challenges accessing healthcare due to other aspects of their identities
- Name three aspects of transgender and non-binary patients’ identities which may act as facilitators to accessing healthcare
- Explain two ways that medical/behavioral health providers can improve health care access or experience for transgender and non-binary patients
 

2. Working Within Our Communities, Making the Personal Professional for Trans & Non- Binary Providers - This session is open only to trans spectrum identified providers only, no cisgender providers.
Jaye Watts, LICSW

There are in increasing number of TGNB identified people who are seeking careers in medical and behavioral health care. TGNB providers who choose to focus on working with TGNB patients can face unique challenges including disclosure, visibility, transference and having to educate cisgender supervisors.  In this workshop, participants will engage in a facilitated discussion about the benefits, challenges, ethical conflicts of working within a population with which we identify. We will also explore restorative strategies and opportunities for peer learning to foster professional growth.

- Identify at least 3 benefits and challenges for Trans and non-binary providers (TGNB) providers working with TGNB identified patients and/or their families
- Discuss potential ethical conflicts and boundary challenges for TGNB providers working with TGNB identified patients and   strategies to manage them
- Explore opportunities for peer support and self-care for TGNB identified providers
