Brittany Allen, MD and Jennifer Rehm, MD, Awarded Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Grant

Congratulations to Brittany Allen, MD, Principal Investigator, and Jennifer Rehm, MD, Co-Principal Investigator, on funding of their grant entitled, “An Integrated PATH for Transgender Youth.” This $80,000, 2-year award, funded by the Ira and Ineva Reilly Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment, aims to make the evidence-based services and resources at the Pediatric and Adolescent Transgender Health (PATH) clinic at American Family Children’s Hospital available to youth and advocates throughout the state. The project will create a partnership with community advocates, including the Gay Straight Alliance for Safe Schools (GSAFE), to support the whole transgender child and their family through integration of mental health, legal, educational, and advocacy services. In addition, the project will provide education and resources that will empower providers and community members to work towards these goals. This competitive grant program, open to University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty, staff and students, is designed to foster public engagement and advance the Wisconsin Idea.
