According to the National Institutes of Health, transgender is an umbrella term for persons whose gender identity, gender expression, or behavior does not conform to that typically associated with the sex to which they were assigned at birth. When transgender individuals seek medically supervised services, they often encounter significant barriers to care. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, endocrinologist Dr. Todd Nippoldt and clinical psychologist Dr. Cesar Gonzalez — both physicians in the Transgender and Intersex Specialty Care Clinic on Mayo Clinic's Rochester campus — will discuss minority stress and other issues faced by transgender individuals. Also on the program, anesthesiologist Dr. Michael Joyner covers the doping scandal that resulted in the Russian track and field team being banned from the upcoming Summer Olympic Games. And, internal medicine specialist Dr. Sherry-Ann Brown will share information on ataxia, a lack of muscle control during voluntary movements, in a unique manner — through her medical poetry.
Listen to the program on Saturday, July 23, at 9:05 a.m. CDT.
