Throughout training, I have focused my academic pursuit on the care of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities. This includes work with residency program leadership, the Division of General Internal Medicine and hospital diversity programs to incorporate training on appropriate care of LGBT patients, authoring guidelines on the topic and disseminating the material through online and in-person trainings to medical students, residents, fellows and attendings locally, as well as regional and national presentations.
My clinical practice in is focused on the care of the LGBT population. Starting in residency training, I have provided gender affirming care to transgender patients and in my fellowship training track - the HIV Clinician Educator track - I focused on the outpatient management of HIV patients, and I have specifically focused on HIV prevention and treatment in gay men. This includes training in high resolution anoscopy for the management of HPV disease, as well as a focus on pharmacologic HIV prevention strategies (post-exposure prophylaxis and pre-exposure prophylaxis).
As the Medical Director of the Transgender Health Program at Massachusetts General Hospital, I work with the Department of Medicine and hospital leadership to advance the care of transgender patients in our health system. Our work has increased awareness of transgender medicine throughout the hospital and stimulated discussion of a hospital-system approach to care of this population. We are actively pursuing the development of a transgender clinical space, with multidisciplinary teams providing gender affirming care. I will serve as the Medical Director of this clinical operation and continue to advance the care of transgender patients through innovation.
My scholarly work challenges the discrimination and stigma faced by LGBT communities within the medical system and pairs with my clinical, education and administrative work to advance care for these communities.
