The transgender care group began in the late 1990s ago in response to the need for care of our transgendered population in the central New York area. While the group no longer formally meets, the has continued to be maintained.
The need for more physicians, psychologists/psychiatrists and other healthcare providers to get involved is of an immediate concern. We acknowledge the fact that this is indeed a medical condition which may begin at a very early age in child development but not come to a resolution until later in life, depending on the circumstances. Hormone replacement therapy and sex reassignment may or may not be the path chosen. Our intention is to assist people with this life challenge in hopes of accelerating their ability to cope and exist in a world of diverse social changes and be able to live as healthy, happy, and productive individuals.
