Make a Donation to the Casey White Medical Education Fund


Casey White had a big vision: to ensure that all future medical professionals are equipped to provide quality care to transgender patients. Her plan was to integrate education on gender and orientation in medical school curricula around the nation, so that competent care would be accessible everywhere, and providers would be truly prepared to care for the needs of all patients.

  • 57% report being refused health care

  • 31% suicide attempt rate

Casey was inspired by her brother Jahn, who went through a gender transition, and talked openly with Casey about what it was like navigating the healthcare system. "There were times I was scared, not knowing how providers would respond. My doctors were willing to treat me, they often just didn't know how."

Jahn serves on the board of YES Institute, and he is determined to fulfill Casey’s vision. “I refuse to let my sister’s recent death derail her plans. My initial goal is $50,000 which will lay the groundwork for the institutional change that Casey wanted to make.”

All contributions to the Casey White Medical Education Fund will go toward advancing education on gender and orientation among medical students and professionals.
