Campus Health and Wellbeing Adds Gender-Affirming Care

Campus Health and Wellbeing has added gender-affirming care to its slate of available health services to students, providing an on-campus option for transgender and gender-diverse students who seek to align their physical body with their gender identity. Gender-affirming care is a basic medical service covered by student health fees with no additional co-pays or referrals required. As is the case with other campus health services, any associated prescription costs for gender-affirming care will range between $8 and $30 monthly. “Being an inclusive campus means that we need to take steps in our provision of health care to meet our students where they are,” said Keith Humphrey, vice president for student affairs. “Adding gender-affirming care is one step in assuring all of our students feel welcomed and valued when they seek that basic human right of health care.” The new service takes a multi-pronged individualized and integrated approach, combining hormone replacement therapy and additional medical services like lab testing with counseling and health education support to meet the varied needs of students seeking care.

Sign Up for New Book and Learning Circles in Winter Quarter

Image of book cover for "Why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria?"Employee and Organization Development has announced the winter 2020 Book and Learning Circles. Participate in enriching conversations by joining a Book Circle, where you read a book and discuss as a group, or a Learning Circle, where you view a video or read an article before discussing as a group.
— Book Circles involve reading a book over the course of three or four sessions. The first book is "Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria" by Beverly Daniel Tatum, Ph.D. This valuable read argues that straight talk about our identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides. The second book, "Daring Greatly" by Brené Brown, works to dispel the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.   
— Learning Circles involve watching a video or reading an article and participating in a discussion during a single session. The first learning circle, "Forget Big Change, Start with a Tiny Habit" with BJ Fogg, shows us that the key to lasting change does not lie in planning big, monumental changes, but in thinking really, really small.  The second learning circle is "How Incivility Shuts Down Our Brains At Work," in which Christine Porath explains how workplace culture impacts individuals and provides a goal of creating organizations that thrive. The third learning circle gives us the opportunity to view and discuss "Is My Skin Brown Because I Drank Chocolate Milk" by Beverly Daniel Tatum, which covers the formation of racial identity and the impact of avoiding discussions about race.

Watson has an exceptional talent of re-writing song lyrics to honor special occasions, such as new employees joining the team, birthdays and retirements, or simply to acknowledge someone special. The team wishes Watson happiness, joy and many days of song writing as she plays out her next adventure.
