    Dr. Leibowitz will provide an overview of the most recent edition of the Adolescent chapter in the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) Standard of Care.  WPATH is the leading international authority on transgender healthcare and has been in existence since 1979 when it published its first set of guidelines that made no mention of children or adolescents. Prior to this 8th edition, which was published in September 2022, the previous iteration (7th edition) was published over a decade prior. Join Dr. Leibowitz as he discusses the research and ethics regarding care for children and adolescents with gender related needs, and standards of care for this population.
