Dr. Angela Kade Goepferd on the impact Children’s Gender Health Program could have on gender-diverse kids in Minnesota

Dr. Angela Kade Goepferd, medical director Children’s Gender Health Program and director of medical education, spoke with the Star Tribune about what the new Gender Health program means for transgender and gender-diverse kids in Minnesota. The clinic also serves as a place where families with transgender and gender-diverse children can find pediatric care from care providers who understand their child’s unique needs. One patient’s mother stated, “The fact that I don’t have to try and explain myself to these medical professionals—that they have this baseline understanding of my child—it’s just so great.” Read the full article: Children’s Minnesota opens special clinic for transgender youth.
