Angela Kade Goepferd, MD, is the Director of Medical Education and Vice Chief of Staff at Children’s Minnesota. She is also the Medical Director for Children’s Minnesota’s Center for Gender Health and a practicing pediatrician.
In this episode of the Caring GreatlyTM podcast, Dr. Goepferd champions an inclusive approach to healthcare that supports all patients in reaching their full potential. We discuss how her work to create a pediatric clinic serving LGBTQ and gender-diverse youth at Children’s Minnesota has helped their system transcend diversity efforts and begin to lay a foundation of inclusion. Throughout, Dr. Goepferd notes the importance of human connection in healing health disparities, and we close with an examination of technology’s role in amplifying those connections in the not-so-distant future.
