SLB Room 129
Open to the Yale Community

Please join the Solomon Center for Health Law & Policy at Yale Law School for a panel discussion on increasing access to gender-affirming care. The panel will explain recent state-level attempts to restrict healthcare for trans and nonbinary patients, the scientific disinformation used to justify these laws, and the state of ongoing legal challenges to these laws’ implementation. The panel will then focus on what constitutes effective care for trans and nonbinary patients and suggest areas for policy reform to better address trans and nonbinary healthcare needs. Panelists will include: 

Prof. Anne Alstott: Jacquin D. Bierman Professor, Yale Law School

Sasha Buchert: Nonbinary and Transgender Rights Project Director, Lambda Legal 

Dr. Stuart Weinzimer Professor of Pediatrics, Yale School of Medicine

Dr. Meredithe McNamara: Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Yale School of Medicine
