This week on Under the Radar with Callie Crossley:
Just 40 percent of transgender people are "out" to all of their healthcare providers, according to the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey by the National Center for Transgender Equality. Many trans patients delay healthcare out of fear that their medical needs won't be met or respected.
In Western Massachusetts, one rural clinic is providing healthcare that’s attracting people from all over New England. Transhealth Northampton wants to change primary care for its trans patients — and reform the healthcare industry for good measure. Not only is it the first standalone trans medical and mental health care organization in the nation but it’s the first to be led by transgender medical professionals for patients who are part of the transgender community.
