New LGBT Healthcare Clinic

There’s a new LGBT clinic through the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Not an LGB(t) clinic, but an LGBT clinic. The two primary care doctors who will be staffing the clinic are both trans* friendly, easy to work with, and committed to making this clinic work well for their trans* clients.

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.

  1. A clinic like this has been needed for far too long now, I am so happy that this has finally came about! As a transman I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Imborek far before she became involved with this project, and I would like to say on her behalf that the care she provides is impeccable. Dr.Imborek is one of the most sincerely caring physicians I have met and had the pleasure of being cared for under. I urge all LGBT patients in need of care to take the time to visit, I promise you will not be displeased.
