We are a trans-led team comprised of scientists, researchers, educators, students, and community members. Our priority is to improve the well-being of transgender and nonbinary Washingtonians by leveraging public health and health policy research as a tool for systems change. This work includes expanding trans health and health policy holistically across several social and structural determinants of health that are integral to the lived experiences of transgender and nonbinary people.
