Health Across the Gender Spectrum is an online course offered through Coursera. Taught by Dr Maya Adam and developed in collaboration with Stanford School of Medicine’s educational technology group, it offers an intimate, story-based introduction to the gender spectrum via the experiences of six transgender children and their families. Through illustrated videos, interviews with health experts (some of whom are themselves transgender), and discussion forums, the course outlines some essential healthcare and social practices of building a gender-affirming environments for our children.

The course videos are also available on YouTube
