Brain Spark: Pronouns 101 | October 21st, 2021
The virtual event was a thought-provoking and informative conversation about pronoun use. Our guest speakers, Maybe Burke, Core Trainer at The Transgender Training Institute and Kristian Melby, Physician Assistant at SCC, had an engaging discussion. They talked about what pronouns mean and why this is important for society – and for the work our Clinic does providing healthcare to the LGBTQ+ community.
Tina Perry, Friends Board Member and President at OWN, and Adam Friedman, Chief Marketing and Advancement Officer at SCC, moderated the talk and kept it lively.
