Children’s Mercy has developed the new Gender Pathway Services (GPS) Clinic to help manage these issues.

Based in the Division of Endocrinology, the team provides interdisciplinary family-centered services for transgender, gender-variant, and gender-questioning patients. This is the only center of its kind in the Midwest and one of only a handful in the country.
