The Hamilton Trans Health Coalition is made up of many kinds of people — doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, psychologists, other health professionals, and trans, gender-diverse, and non-binary residents and visitors — working together to build Hamilton’s capacity to deliver quality gender-affirming health care.

Join the coalition at a level of engagement that works for you and your practice:

Corresponding Members are connected to the coalition through email, receiving information about resources that help them provide trans-specific health care.

Attending Members meet one evening a month to share information about their work and ongoing initiatives of the coalition. Some are new to trans care and want to be ready for their first patient, and some provide their existing expertise to other members to expand capacity in Hamilton.

Steering Members attend additional meetings to set the work plan of the coalition in order to implement the mentorship, education, advocacy, and system change that the larger membership has prioritized.

All members enjoy a supportive, judgement-free environment to which they can bring their concerns and challenges around trans-specific health care, and an information and referral service to which they can direct patients, colleagues, and other inquirers.
