Science AMA Series: I’m Cecilia Dhejne a fellow of the European Committee of Sexual Medicine, from the Karolinska University Hospital in Sweden. I’m here to talk about transgender health, suicide rates, and my often misinterpreted study. Ask me anything! : science:

“I am a MD, board certified psychiatrist, fellow of the European Committee of Sexual medicine and clinical sexologist (NACS), and a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). I founded the Stockholm Gender Team and have worked with transgender health for nearly 30 years. As a medical adviser to the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare, I specifically focused on improving transgender health and legal rights for transgender people. In 2016, the transgender organisation, ‘Free Personality Expression Sweden’ honoured me with their yearly Trans Hero award for improving transgender health care in Sweden.”
