'MyTransHealth' is a new online platform that helps connect transgender individuals with qualified healthcare providers. For many trans and gender non-conforming individuals, it can be difficult to access quality healthcare services. MyTransHealth helps members of the trans community connect with doctors and other medical professionals who care.

MyTransHealth functions as a free online service that will connect transgender individuals with doctors who are not only qualified, but also culturally sensitive. The website features a location-based search tool that allows users to filter results based on medical needs, mental health, legal concerns and crisis care. Users can further sort their results based on language, accessibility and insurance coverage.

The revolutionary service helps to eliminate some of the barriers that prevent trans and gender non-conforming individuals from accessing quality healthcare.
