Gerry Kasten loves food! He was born to a farming family and still helps his brother bring in the harvest each year. He worked as a Public Health Dietitian in BC for the past thirty years, and has led the boards of directors of both Dietitians of Canada and the BC Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation. Gerry’s chequered past has led him to a critical analysis of the constructions of gender, particularly as they are enacted through food.
He wants to live in a world where people celebrate food, sharing it with those they love, taking its pleasure without restraint because its flavour saturates their most sensuous appetites.
Physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, registered clinical counsellors, and registered health care professionals are invited to join Gerry Kasten on the June 17th Mentorship Call. This Zoom meeting will provide an opportunity for sharing of information and resources, clinical discussion and professional networking.
Trans Care BC’s Clinical Mentorship Call is held every Thursday from 12:10 to 1:00 p.m. (Pacific Time). If you would like to be involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be included on our distribution list. Meeting minutes will be made available to all members.
