In response to reports of a memo obtained from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that seeks to narrowly redefine sex under federal law as an immutable, binary construct determined by one’s genitalia at birth, the LBGT PA Caucus joined more than 35 leading health professional associations and community health centers on a letter strongly opposing this proposal as contrary to medical science.
The 38 organizations joining the letter recognize that gender is non-binary and cannot be determined solely by sex assigned at birth, and strongly urge that the Trump Administration reconsider this reported course of action that would have detrimental impact on the health and well-being of transgender and intersex individuals, and seriously impede nondiscrimination protections for these communities.
The LBGT PA Caucus has a brand new Facebook page!
As the official face of the Caucus on Facebook, this additional presence on social media will provide the Caucus with improved visibility.
We are excited to have yet another way of connecting with PAs, PA students, and other health care practitioners who work toward health care equity for the PA profession and our patients.
Like us, follow us, and share us! Updated frequently, it's the place to go for timely LGBT heath-related articles, Caucus news, and other announcements.
