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 well our health system serves and supports 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.
