A recently published report from the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, finds that nearly half of transgender people in the U.S have been mistreated by a health care provider.

As a result, many transgender patients have postponed treatment.

Calvin Gilbert, a nurse practitioner at Martin Lyon Health Services, shares what it's like to be both a provider and an advocate for transgender issues in medicine.

This segment aired on September 13, 2021.
