Politics, geography and poverty all have significant bearing on healthcare delivery and quality, and transgender healthcare is uniquely affected by all three factors, according to Connectus Healthcare certified nurse-midwife Alice R. Sattler, N.P., C.N.M., and her colleagues.

Sattler was among the experts who presented the topic “Red State Solutions for Transgender Healthcare Access: Provision in Low Resource Areas” as part of a panel at the 16th-annual Philadelphia Trans Health Conference, a project of the Mazzoni Center, in September.

“This is a time in our nation when we need to talk openly about the very real political and economic barriers faced by transgender individuals seeking quality healthcare,” Sattler said. “I am thrilled to be a part of this expert panel and to help empower the medical professionals who are on the frontlines every day helping patients with this complex set of needs.”

Sattler currently provides informed-consent care for transgender people at Connectus Health. She has published on transgender health disparities and is interested in epidemiological approaches to transgender health research. Connectus Health is one of the only healthcare providers in Nashville that routinely provides comprehensive care for transgender patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
