Abstract or Summary
  • Despite research advancements, the medical field contributes to many health disparities, or situations in which groups that were historically oppressed also experience systematically worse health and greater health risks than more advantaged groups. Although some researchers have paid attention to this population, most studies focus on transition-related care (mostly surgeries or hormone changes) and fail to consider how day-to-day general care may be affected. This thesis demonstrates some types of disparities existing in non-transition-related care by presenting anecdotal evidence from several interviews of transgender-identifying volunteers. The purpose is to inspire future research in identifying and solving problems in comprehensive care of transgender patients.
