Hartford HealthCare's Center for Gender Health will begin seeing patients in September.

Hartford HealthCare has launched the Center for Gender Health and will start seeing patients seeking gender-affirming care in September.

Joining "All Things Considered" to discuss her hopes for the new facility was Dr. Laura Saunders, the director of the center.

She talks about how those suffering from gender incongruence will be able to get more than gender-affirming care at the Center for Gender Health.

Those who are gender variant, she says, are underrepresented at all levels of the health care system.

He's proud to be a part of the team that won a regional Emmy Award for The Vote: A Connecticut Conversation. In his 21st year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
