The Minnesota Transgender Aging Project:

Locating a Hidden Population and Identifying Service Needs



This study, conducted by Dr. Abel Knochel of the University of Minnesota Duluth and Dylan Flunker of Rainbow Health Initiative, seeks to explore:

  • What medical and aging resources are available for transgender older adults?
  • How do transgender older adults experience health services and aging services in the Twin Cities metropolitan area and the Arrowhead region?
  • What do health services and aging services need in order to better serve this population?
