Montgomery County needs to invest in transgender health care resources, new report says

January 25, 2024

The Montgomery County government could be doing more to support its transgender residents, a Jan. 16 report found, recommending that officials consider creating a resource center and lobbying the state to require cultural competency training for medical providers. Council Vice President Kate Stewart (D-Dist. 4) commissioned the 57-page report created by the Montgomery County Office of Legislative Oversight (OLO) in early 2023.
