Gender Affirming Care Clinic
The Gender Affirming Care Clinic is a free, student-run clinic which offers gender affirming care on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, from 6-9pm. We are located within the Student Health Action Coalition at 301 Lloyd St. in Carrboro, NC.
Our supervising providers are Dr. Karen Kimmel-Scott, Dr. Tonia Poteat, and Dr. Rita Lahlou, who are all faculty in the departments of Family and Internal Medicine at UNC and have years of clinical experience with gender affirming care. The many of our student providers are queer and/or trans, and several speak Spanish. We provide the following services:
- free visits
- prescriptions for hormone therapy
- general primary care needs
- letters of support for surgery, and
- access to other resources or referrals within SHAC and the community
At this time we are unable to offer hormones for free, but we hope to in the near future. We currently can only see people who are 18 years or older, but can provide referrals to sources of care.
We know that trans folks often experience violence and alienation in healthcare settings. At this clinic, we train the entire staff (front desk, lab staff, etc.) with the goal that trans folks who come will feel comfortable, respected and cared for.
To set up an appointment, call and leave a message at the SHAC Gender Affirming Care clinic number, 919-442-8717, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are also more than happy to answer questions over the phone or email if you have any!
