Soon there will be the first nationwide population based study on the health of transgender populations in the US. The study is a collaboration between the Williams Institute at UCLA, Fenway Institute, and Columbia University, and will examine the healthcare needs of trans people. The study will also provide a better estimate of the size of transgender populations within the US.
I interviewed two of the study’s investigators a year ago. We talked about the the study’s purpose and goals.
