In this talk, exhibit curator Steve Duckworth will focus on the documented history of transgender health care at OHSU, starting in 1917 with alumnus Alan Hart. Over the course of more than a hundred years, the support for trans care has waxed and waned, but the changes paint a picture of slow-growing support for trans patients and their medical needs. 

Steve Duckworth is the University Archivist and Interim Director of Special Collections for OHSU, as well as a part-time lecturer at Emporia State University.
