Rutgers University Libraries' Babs Siperstein Humanities and Medicine Seminars take an inclusive and intersectional approach to broaden the understanding of LGBTQIA+ issues. The goal is to build health care workers' capacity and knowledge base, thus increasing their ability to provide more comprehensive and holistic health care.
Dr. David Cohen, Assistant Professor and clinician-educator in the Division of Endocrinology and Department of Medicine at the Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine, and Dr. Sara Lubitz, Associate Professor at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, will present "Gender Affirmation Hormone Therapy: Taking It to the Next Level" on Monday, January 30, 2023, from 6:00–7:00 p.m. This is an online event.
This series is named in honor of Barbra (Babs) Casber Siperstein (1942–2019), a transgender activist based in New Jersey. Siperstein advocated for marriage equality, workplace discrimination reforms, and amendments to discrimination laws to better protect transgender people.
