19 Feb Health Care Resources in The Rest of Missouri and Montana
You know that we want you to be healthy and safe. To help you with your health care journey we are creating a list, by state of health care organizations that serve the transgender, nonbinary, gender queer and non-conforming community. While we are creating this site for you, we are also doing this weekly post on health care. While it’s nice to have a list, in these posts we can also give you a few details on what each of the organizations we post actually do. We’ll just go through the states alphabetically, unless you send us a note and request a particular state and we’ll move requests to the top of the list.
Today we are covering the rest of Missouri (excluding Kansas City which was covered last week) and Montana.
Many resources are, to their credit, creating comfortable places for routine and proactive health maintenance as well as interventionary health care. We will try to highlight what is offered in each case.
If you still can’t find the health care you need, drop us a note on FB (B.UR.SLF LLC), instagram/ twitter @burslfllc or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see what we can do to help.
This week we are listing resources for the rest of Missouri (except Kansas City which was covered last week) and also Montana.
