Virtual Workshop: Preparing for Gender Affirming Surgery – A Practical Guide, Wednesday, January 27th, 7PM EST

Liz Boskey, Ph.D. Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School
Maria Semnack, RN Center for Gender Surgery, Boston Children’s Hospital
Wednesday January 27, 7pm ET. Zoom

This workshop is designed for people who are considering one or more gender affirming surgeries. A nurse and social worker who work in a gender surgery center will present the most common eligibility guidelines for various surgical procedures and explain how and what you may be expected to prepare before attending a surgical consult. During this workshop, the providers will discuss WPATH guidelines, insurance coverage (focusing on New England), letters, hair removal, and other aspects of getting ready to undergo top or bottom surgery. They will also answer questions about getting ready for surgery, what the consult process is like, and recovery from different procedures.
Attendees are encouraged to bring questions on general surgical and insurance issues. The providers will not be providing specific medical advice during the workshop.

All virtual workshops are free but we do ask that you register in advanced:
