WPATH Graduate Student Research Symposium

WPATH Graduate Student Research Symposium

The WPATH Student Initiative (WSI) is collaborating with Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference to organize the 5th graduate student research symposium as part of conference programming. The symposium showcases the latest research in transgender health from graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and other advanced research trainees across a variety of academic disciplines. WSI provides opportunities for graduate students to become active in the work of WPATH, a multidisciplinary professional association which works on behalf of transgender people around the world. Student members serve as liaisons to committees and to the Board of Directors. The WSI also works to support student research by awarding small research grants and fostering opportunities for students to present their research at WPATH and other transgender-related conferences across the world.
