Eastern Iowa Healthcare Symposium for Providers (May 19-20th, 2012)

In November 2011 we hosted a medical workshop as one of the events for TransWeek. Through that workshop (and in on-going conversations within our communities) we identified the need for a more rigorous discussion on many aspects of provider communities working and interacting with transgender-identified clients. In this spirit, we will host a medical symposium May 19th and 20th at the University Capitol Center in Iowa City. A schedule will be posted soon enough. This symposium is free.

We encourage providers and others working with trans* populations to attend.

Please visit the Registration page so that we have an accurate estimate for the number of people attending.


About transcollaborations

TransCollaborations is an organization open to all trans-identified people and allies of the trans community in Iowa City and beyond. Our work is aimed towards promoting education, outreach, civic engagement, and community building centered around gender identity and addressing intersectional forms of oppression. We aim to bring trans-identified folk and allies together for these purposes and to implement The UI TransWeek on an annual basis. TransWeek is a week of events organized around the dual themes of remembering and celebrating trans-identified folk and serves to provide education, spirited discussions, and celebration of those who have overcome institutional and micro-level trans-related barriers.
