In addition, TGET at Columbia Health stands in solidarity with activists across the United States and beyond in response to anti-Black violence. Black Lives Matter and Black Trans Lives Matter and we honor the lives of those we’ve lost including Nina Pop, Riah Martin, Tony McDade, Dominique “Rem’mie” Fells, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Oluwatoyin Salah, Ahmaud Marquez Arbery, Rayshard Brooks, and so many others.
TGET, an interdisciplinary group of clinicians and health professionals at Columbia Health, remains committed to working collaboratively with and providing gender-affirming resources, services, and support to Columbia’s transgender and gender expansive students. Further, this commitment is inclusive of continual self-reflection, evaluation, and advocacy on the part of our staff to work towards the highest standard of care.
The following resources may be helpful to students seeking support around some of these concerns (note: this is not an exhaustive list; please contact TGET for more resources and support):
