A health center in Humboldt, Calif., Tuesday launched a monthly clinic designed
with the needs of transgender people in mind.
Project HEALTH, or Project Harnessing Education Advocacy and Leadership for Transgender Health, provides much-needed health resources for transgender clients. Project HEALTH coordinator Kara Desiderio told The Times Standard
there are few transgender clinics in California and that access to health services like the Humboldt Open Door Clinic remains a barrier for transgender people.
"I think it's excellent that Humboldt being such a rural area is stepping up to address this issue," Desiderio said.
The clinic will dedicate its services specifically to transgender clients the first Tuesday of the month from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
