Making Room for Gender Diversity in School Health Services and Sex Education

Presenters

  • Becca Mui, education manager, GLSEN
  • Kim Westheimer, director of strategic initiatives, Gender Spectrum

Transgender and gender nonconforming students experience high levels of victimization in our nation’s schools, increasing their risk of adverse mental and physical health outcomes, including sexual health outcomes such as STIs and HIV. One strategy to improve health outcomes is to ensure that gender diverse students feel included and affirmed within the larger school community and their school-based health center.

In this webinar, we share relevant research, inclusive approaches and affirming practices that can be used when teaching or discussing puberty and reproductive health with students.
