Highly practical training, highly recommend!
This training provided me with a strong, solid foundation to begin to offer letters for gender-affirming hormones and medical procedures right away. Dr. Keo-Meier has an amazing body of knowledge and experience and made this training highly practical and a wonderful interactive experience as well.
