Published on August 31, 2022


In Part 3 of our series on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), we are joined by healthcare thought leader Jake Starratt-Farr – a social worker, counsellor, and member of CMA’s Patient Voice – to explore how our health system does, or does not, include and support those who don’t identify as cisgender and those who identify as transgender.  Tune in as we continue our series on EDI, one of the most important topics in Canada, around the world, and in healthcare.
