Pediatric Gender Diversity Program
The UCI Health Pediatric Gender Diversity Program offers Orange County's only interdisciplinary program dedicated to caring for transgender and gender-expansive children, teens and young adults up to age 26.
Our team of specialists provides affirming, supportive care with a full range of services, all in one location.
Services for children, adolescents and young adults include:
- Patient and family counseling
- Puberty suppression
- Gender-affirming hormone therapy
- Sexual health, education and HIV prevention
- Community connections and support
- School and community engagement
- Provider and trainee education
Our physicians are experienced at working with young people whose gender identity or expression may be in conflict with their physical characteristics or with what others expect of them.
Our goal is to help each individual live happy, fulfilling and authentic lives.
The gender diversity team includes:
- Lynn Hunt, MD, pediatrician
- Ajanta Naidu, MD, endocrinologist
- Jeffrey Vu, family nurse practitioner
- Brit Cervantes, program coordinator
We see patients by appointment at UCI Medical Center in Orange and at Gottschalk Medical Plaza on the university campus in Irvine.
