EPATH hosted their third European conference on transgender health, entitled ‘Inside Matters: on Law, Ethics and Religion‘ from 11-13 April 2019 in Rome, Italy. The EPATH programme featured 14 global opinion-leading scientists delivering plenary lectures, 16 workshops covering the most salient topics in current transgender health, 155 oral and poster presentations. There is clearly a strong interest in EPATH, as we never before received so many abstract and workshop submissions. This edition had the largest trans specific scientific program in Europe to date.
EPATH hosted a free public event as part of the EPATH conference, in which keynote speakers Susannah Cornwall (University of Exeter, UK), Dinah Bons (Strategic Director Transgender Europe) and Vladimir Luxuria presented actual challenges in the academic, clinical and policy domains of transgender health care. This way the board hopes to foster the dialogue between civil society, politicians and academics in the region the conference is held, and opens its doors to those not able to attend scientific conferences.
