 Healthcare awareness training and education when working with trans and gender diverse people.

 Trans and gender diverse people are a vulnerable and underserved population with an increasing demand for appropriate and affirmative health care. Kinsey Institute Global Ambassador and a world-renowned transgender advocate, Jessica Lynn has developed a number of bespoke awareness, training and education packages to improve understanding about trans and gender diverse people and their needs.

 These  training packages aim to engage health professionals to consider how they could improve the health and care experiences of transgender and gender diverse people that they work with. We help generate new skills and strategies for health professionals when supporting trans and gender diverse people and their families.

 The training packages aim to appeal to all healthcare professionals regardless of experience of trans and gender diverse people. I aim to engage all healthcare professionals in supporting trans and gender diverse service users who require effective and affirming health care at all stages of life regardless of transition-related concerns or medical interventions.

 It is my aim to facilitate effective and rewarding healthcare experiences for both trans and gender diverse people and practitioners.
