i'm working on a study titled 'Urological Symptoms and Experiences of Care for Transfeminine People' with the aim of making urologists better advocates for their trans/NB patients. It consists of a one-time questionnaire that was reviewed and edited by 20 trans volunteers in my community.
i've reached a plateau in recruitment and i'm trying to get creative :)
would anyone here be interested in lending their time and experience to support a newbie researcher?
#showerthought there's no such thing as getting back to a body you used to have. i see it all over the place, especially for femme-presenting people--pre-quarantine body, pre-pregnancy body, pre-illness body, etc. it's become a normalized idea that if we work hard enough we can go back to a specific shape or weight, and i think that's a big disservice to all the work our bodies do everyday. we are a dynamic sum of parts that are constantly turning over, shifting, new.

i'm a lil baby doctor-in-training, inching ever closer to being a sex-positive, gender diversity focused urologist 💦
I love talking all things medicine, especially trans accessibility (make gynecology queer!) Also mental health, substance use, and trauma-informed care for chronically unhoused people
please tell me your fav horror baddie, cryptid crush, or spooky science oopsie :)
