THE RAINBOW CLINIC
One of the proudest professional moments for me was the opening of the Rainbow Clinic in Modesto, California. The gender health clinic is run by family medicine residents and offers gender-affirming care to the transgender community. The Rainbow Clinic is a safer space for the LGBTQ+ community to access care.

RESIDENT MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR PEERS, PATIENTS
“I was the only physician there,” said Silva, a third-year resident at Valley Family Medicine in Modesto, Calif. “It ended up being a doctor-bashing session. People said, ‘We’re being mistreated. We don’t have access to care.’ I thought, ‘This is unbelievable. I’m so glad I’m here.’”
“You hear horror stories from trans people about doctors offices, but thankfully for me I found the dream team. I'm lucky to have found the Rainbow Clinic to help me on my gender journey.”
