Student Health & Well-Being (SHWB) invites members of the Hopkins transgender and gender-diverse communities to provide insight on our current and future gender-affirming care services.

Our goal is to provide gender-affirming care that includes hormone therapy, counseling, referrals, and other supportive services for both the Homewood and East Baltimore campuses.

In addition, we would like to get feedback on what students and learners would find helpful to be included on this website regarding these services. Participants will also learn more about ways to become ongoing student members of the JHU Gender-Affirming Care Team.

There are a variety of ways you can be involved:

  • We would like to start this process with a kick-off Zoom group meeting on Tuesday February 15th from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for those who are able to attend.
  • We will then post an outline of the discussion in a live SharePoint document and invite contributions to the content asynchronously or via 1:1 meetings.
  • We will reconvene a second Zoom group meeting to make final edits with the goal of posting a comprehensive list of regarding gender-affirming resources on this site.

In total, we imagine this will be a 1 to 4 hour time commitment from participants depending on your availability and your chosen level of participation.

Please e-mail Charlene Phipps ([email protected]) if you would like to partner with us.
