Trans Health Training in Peterborough

So we are finally ready to spread the word about the upcoming trans health training in Peterborough! 

Please see the attached flyers for more information, and the short description below. Sessions are geared towards health and social service providers and open to all. 

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD to your relevant contacts! 

Trans Health Connection - A program of Rainbow Health Ontario and Sherbourne Health Centre - has partnered with the Peterborough Family Health Team and the Canadian Mental Health Association, Peterborough, to offer 2 comprehensive days of trans health training! This is an incredible opportunity to attend up to 2 free days of comprehensive education on the topic of working with and supporting trans people to access health care and other services. 

Come join us for a fun and animated day of learning! We will be doing some engaging and interactive exploration of language and terminology, discussing the health care needs of trans communities, as well as practical steps for making services more trans positive. For more details, include how to register, see the attached poster. 

Please join us for a second day of learning, where we focus on providing holistic community-based health services for trans communities. This session will have a clinical focus, looking at processes for assessment, monitoring, and doing follow-up care with hormone replacement therapy. We will also look at strategies for making proper referrals and building a sustainable  and accessible health care system for trans communities. For more details, including how to register, see the attached poster. 

ACCESS: St. Anne's Church, where we are holding the training days, is wheelchair accessible. Accessible entrance is on the north side of the building (front door has steps up) and inside is equipped with an elevator for access to the hall on the second floor. Washrooms are also wheelchair accessible. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about access. 

look forward to seeing you there!
