Already a leader in caring for children and adolescents who identify as gender nonconforming, transgender or those with variation in sex development, Lurie Children's is advancing knowledge of these populations by integrating health care with research, professional education and advocacy. Despite clear signs of progress, significant challenges remain in caring for these patients. Building a more solid evidence base through research will improve understanding about the health needs of these children and adolescents, support their long-term outcomes and contribute to new  knowledge.

Robert Garofalo, MD, MPH, Head of the Division of Adolescent Medicine, and Earl Y. Cheng, MD, Head of the Division of Urology, co-lead Lurie Children's Gender and Sex Development Program. At the luncheon they will share how Lurie Children's is working to help parents and children navigate identity. 

Following the remarks, you will have the opportunity to chat with other experts from the Gender and Sex Development Program seated at your table. Guests are welcome, and complimentary parking  will be available.
