Meghan Murphy and Ken Zucker are giving a talk about trans kids in Vancouver this Thursday as part of a series called “GIDYVR”. For those unfamilair, GID was a diagnosis removed from the DSM in 2013 because it pathologized trans identity. A THREAD:

Meghan Murphy needs no introduction, but for those unfamiliar with Ken Zucker’s work, below are links to what myself and many others have written. First, a short video of San Francisco community health worker @_riparia_ at the 2017 USPATH Conference

Starting Oct 1, MDs in BC will face severe fines for privately billing for evaluations & procedures that are benefits under universal care (MSP). I wonder if @AdrianDix will apply this law, just as rigorously, to any naturopath who manages MSP-covered conditions...?#cdnhealth
2/n
Some may argue that naturopathy is considered a “supplementary benefit” in BC, and therefore can be billed privately. But naturopaths are routinely going well beyond any definition of “supplementary” practice, and are actively promoting themselves as primary care providers…
3/n
NDs say they perform 'primary care evaluations' for colds, chronic conditions, celiac & thyroid disease, fatigue, & other illnesses, but despite these being BENEFITS under MSP, will bill patients privately FAR in excess of what would be covered by MSP for an MD.
