The Widerströmska Equal Rights Network, which comprises the equal rights representatives at the LIME, PHS, CNS, KBH, and NVS Departments, has the pleasure to invite you to the first lunch seminar of this semester, entitled: “Transgender, in life and in research”

The topic of gender affirming treatment has been debated in the past years. But how many are affected by this debate, and what do we know about the mental health in the trans population?

Kyriaki Kosidou, PhD and psychiatrist, is a researcher in psychiatric epidemiology in the EPiCSS research group at the department of Public Health Sciences, KI. Her interests include gender incongruence, mental health in young people and early-life risk factors for psychiatric disorders. She is the author of a report published in 2018 of people with gender incongruence in Stockholm county. 

The event will take place on Thursday the 29th of August at 12,00 in the Wretlind room, Widerströmska Huset. Sandwiches will be served from 11,30 (first come, first served). Seats are limited.

Please register by August 23rd: https://survey.ki.se/Survey/16478
