As the Democratic presidential candidates prepare to discuss LGBTQ issues at a town hall Oct. 10, Endocrine Society spokesman Joshua Safer, MD, is available to comment on transgender health and the benefits of increased access to care.

Safer is the Executive Director of the Mount Sinai Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) and Professor of Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He can provide context on:

  • The standard of care for treating transgender patients
  • Gender-affirming treatment’s health and quality of life benefits and why insurers should cover these interventions
  • Research gaps and policy changes needed to optimize care
