“pubertal suppression, hormone therapy, gender affirming surgical care, sexual health and fertility, as well as writing letters of support, and care planning for surgery”
This is part of their nursing program and is obviously meant to perpetuate the trans agenda.

Columbia launches ‘Transgender Non-Binary Health Care’ program
Columbia University’s School of Nursing certificate program in “Transgender Non-Binary Health Care for Advanced Practice Nurses and PAs” is launching for the fall 2022 semester.
Students will learn “pubertal suppression, hormone therapy, gender affirming surgical care, sexual health and fertility, as well as writing letters of support, and care planning for surgery,” according to the university website.
On Mar. 29 of last year, the university released a statement explaining that the program intends to educate nurse practitioners and physician assistants to treat nonbinary and transgender patients.
“Access to affirming health care can be a matter of life and death. Transgender people are at increased risk of suicide, while gender-affirming treatment sharply reduces this risk,” a follow-up March 2022 announcement states.
Accordingly, nurse practitioners and physician assistants will be trained to “manage hormonal interventions for transgender patients and monitor side effects.”
The Transgender Non-Binary Health Care CPA Program will be directed by Associate Professor of Nursing at CUMC Laura Kelly.
Certain health procedures for transgender patients are not without controversy.
In 2015, Dr. Paul McHugh, Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School, wrote that “gender dysphoria…belongs in the family of similarly disordered assumptions about the body, such as anorexia nervosa and body dysmorphic disorder.”
