Transgender Medicine

UHC is committed to providing comprehensive and inclusive care for transgender and gender non-conforming students.

To meet with a mental health provider to discuss gender issues, please call CAPS at 706-542-2273 and ask for an appointment with Dr. Shannon Bowles (she/her/hers).

To meet with a medical provider about hormone therapy, please call the Medical Clinic Blue at 706-542-8654 and ask for a 40 minute appointment with Dr. Jenny Wares (she/her/hers).

Your primary clinic does not have to be Blue to meet with Dr. Wares about hormones.
You do not have to see your PCP first.
You do not have to be ready to begin hormones – you can come for an appointment if you simply want to know more.
In addition, you do not have to have a letter of readiness before you meet with Dr. Wares (this will be discussed at your first appointment with her).
