Community Medical School is a health and healthcare focused public lecture series that occurs on the first Tuesday of each month from March through May and September through November. The series, which is designed to share the medical learning experience with community members in and around Vermont, features faculty, staff and student experts from the UVM Larner College of Medicine, the UVM Medical Center, and local community organizations. Last Tuesday, Eli Goldberg, a medical student in the class of 2020 joined panelists A. Evan Eyler, M.D., a UVM professor of psychiatry and family medicine, Kate Jerman, M.P.H., the director of the LGBTQA Center at UVM, and Lola Houston, a UVM standardized patient and Burlington-based relationship coach for a special panel presentation, "Transgender Health & Healthcare: Transitioning to Affirmative Care." The topic is one that Goldberg is an expert on both as a medical student and as a member of the transgender community.
