The UCLA Gender Health Program offers:
In 2019 the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA launched a fellowship to address LGBTQ health care needs and inequities, areas that often are overlooked in medical school and residency training. The program provides the fellow with an immersive experience in LGBTQ health and wellness, including sexual and behavioral health, transgender care and hormone management, and gender affirming surgery. Dr. Rebecca Rada is the program’s newest fellow. She completed her Family Medicine residency at St. Louis University. Her clinical interests include transgender care, LGBTQ+ primary care, HIV/AIDs, and STI prevention and treatment. She is also passionate about addiction medicine, women’s health, and ensuring marginalized groups receive comprehensive and compassionate care. The Gender Health Program welcomes Dr. Rada!
The doctors and staff of the UCLA Gender Health Program team would like to reassure our patient communities that WE ARE AND ALWAYS WILL BE committed to providing and promoting compassionate, inclusive and equitable care throughout our health system. We hold to these core values and practices, despite the ever-changing winds of public discourse. Our commitment to lesbian, gay, trans, and gender-diverse patients is unwavering.
