Parents of transgender youth and legal groups sued to block the state's ban on doctors prescribing gender-affirming treatment to minors.

On this week’s episode, we focus on transgender health care with Dr. Z Paige L'Erario, a vascular neurologist and transgender activist.

We’ll discuss the intricate web of medical, psychological and social considerations that intersect within the realm of gender-affirming care.
