A welcoming environment for all
Dalhousie Student Health & Wellness works to create a safe and comfortable environment for everyone using our services, including those of the Rainbow community. Please let us know your preferred name and your prounouns when you visit.
Our staff also provide services for the Trans community, including:
- initiating and maintaining cross-hormone therapy (letter of readiness not needed)
- providing letters of readiness for gender reaffirming surgery (this includes the letter required from a family doctor only)
- Prescribing appropriate medication following completion of assessment
When you make your appointment at the Student Health & Wellness Centre, ask for Dr. Andrea or Dr. Mallory.
Tip: Our health professionals will personalize their assessment based on their abilities and their knowledge of you. Common topics you will talk about include medical history (both physical and mental), alcohol and drug involvement, smoking, family and social relationships, sexual orientation and practices, economic considerations and gender concerns, and body parts and symptoms (specific to the reason you are coming into the clinic).
