Dr Olson-Kennedy

To round up season one of the GenderGP podcast we are joined by Dr Johanna Olson-Kennedy.

Dr Olson-Kennedy is the Medical Director of The Center for Transyouth Health and Development at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the largest transgender youth clinic in the United States. She specialises in the care of gender non-conforming children and transgender youth.

Dr. Olson-Kennedy is considered a national expert in the area of medical intervention for transgender youth and young adults in the US. She has appeared frequently on national television and spoken all over the country to educate providers, parents, and other communities about the needs of transgender youth.

In this episode, she joins Marianne and Helen to talk about the gender affirmative approach taken by her clinic and why she believes that compassion is more important than certainty, when it comes to the healthcare needs of young gender variant people.
