My name is Syd. I would like to interview trans folks who have type 2 diabetes about what it's like to live with their type 2 diabetes. I'm a Public Health Masters student at Thomas Jefferson University College of Population Health, and I am working on my thesis. I'm would like to add to the medical literature regarding trans needs in relation to chronic health management. Existing literature on trans patients is lacking in a lot of areas. The reason research of this nature is important is because it helps medical providers and people in charge of health plans create programs and infrastructure that are inclusive and mindful of patient needs and experiences.

I would love to speak with you over the phone or on skype for about 30 minutes if you:

-Are between the ages of 18 and 64
-Have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes
-Are transgender
-Are a current resident of the United States

If you would like more information or would like to lend your experiences to my project, please email me at
