Health Services has a wide variety of gender-affirming services, including:

  • Age-appropriate cancer screening (gender-affirming PAP testing)
  • PrEP
  • STI screening
  • Hormone therapy (estrogen-based, testoterone-based, coordination care, and outside referrals)
  • Self-injection teaching

Each person has a different story and may be at a different stage in their transition. We suggest you make an appointment with one of the Gender-Affirming Care Team clinicians. This allows us to get to know you, review your medical history, and work with you to provide the assistance you need.

If you are considering hormone therapy, we strongly recommend viewing the introduction to hormone therapy videos Testosterone-based* or Estrogen-based* before your medical visit to help you identify topics to discuss with your clinician.
