Lauren Galbraith started providing gender affirming care in summer 2019 after completing a mentorship at the Trans Specialty Clinic during her UBC Fellowship in Reproductive and Sexual Health. She practices general family medicine in both Nelson and Salmo and appreciates the longitudinal care that this career allows for. She also has a special interest in gender affirming care, contraception and sexual health.

Dr Galbraith was born and raised in Nelson and is happy to be back home practicing, where she can easily get into the mountains and on the water on her days off with her dog and family.

Join Dr. Marria Townsend and Dr. Ingrid Cosio to continue the discussion from the Gender Affirming Care in Children and Adolescents webinar  (April 2023).
