Description

​The NEPA Trans Health Conference was conceived in 2012 as an educational forum for Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA) area health care professionals, their staffs, educators, and the general public to learn from the transgender community and from those who treat and support them about the necessary care, respect, and understanding of people who are transgender.
