Resources and publications

Each year staff from our Trans Care Program publishes an updated version of the Philadelphia Trans Resource Guide in conjunction with our annual Philadelphia Trans Health Conference.  The idea is to help connect people who are trans identified, genderqueer or gender nonconforming, as well as their families and loved ones, with resources and services beyond what Mazzoni offers that may be relevant and helpful to them.
