‘Fighting for Their Lives: Understanding Trans and Gender-Diverse Identities’

September 10, 2023 @ 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Understanding trans and gender-diverse identities has become complex. More and more families are encountering the world of gender fluidity. They often are perplexed and even frightened as they strive to navigate unfamiliar terrain. Meanwhile, suicide rates among transitioning teens remain alarmingly high.

No one knows this better than Dr. Morissa Ladinsky, professor of pediatrics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and co-leader of a UAB team that provides gender-affirming care to transgender youth and teens and support to their families.

During the event, Ladinsky will explain gender transitioning, give an update on the pending Alabama law that would criminalize doctors providing gender affirming care to minors, and reflect on her work and advocacy from a Jewish perspective.
