Best Practices in Transgender Medicine
In the second part of our Transgender Medicine and Health series, Holiday Simmons, MSW, Resident in Resilience and Healing at the Campaign for Southern Equality, speaks
with Dr. Koch regarding their barriers faced in medicine from the perspectives of
gender and age.
Simmons and Koch discuss what it really means to “begin transition”, which often starts
with the initial thought that one’s gender identity may not align with their assigned
sex at birth. Simmons describes the key practices for a healthy transition including
social, medical and legal support, as well as salient advice for family and friends
of those who identify as transgender.
