Exercise Physiology for the LGBTQIA+ Community: Working inclusively with trans, non-binary and gender diverse individual Webinar

With a new generation moving forward, this comes with it the need for conventional health services to be revolutionised to ensure there is inclusivity for all consumers, including those who are gender diverse. This presentation focuses on the emerging role of exercise physiology intervention for trans, non-binary and gender diverse individuals. The presentation explores some of the challenges for these consumers to engage in physical activity, the physiological effects associated with gender-affirming treatment, and the current exercise recommendations.
