Philosophy of Care

I believe that people are the experts in their own lives, and that it is my primary role as a medical social worker to help people advocate for their own goals and decisions around medical care.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Elizabeth is a former college professor who went into social work because she wanted to combine her research with patient care. She is passionate about improving access to high-quality medical care for transgender children and adults.
