Julia Crouch is the Project Manager and LGBTQ Liaison for the Seattle Children’s Center for Diversity and Health Equity. In collaboration with the Seattle Children’s Gender Clinic (SCGC), she conducts outreach and training regarding gender affirming care and systems, both within the Seattle Children’s system and more broadly throughout the Pacific Northwest region.
Her team’s research on barriers to care for transgender youth helped launch the SCGC in 2016 and ongoing research with the clinic’s patients will provide much needed data on the impact of gender affirming care for transgender and gender diverse youth. Julia is the former chair of Q Pod, the Seattle Children’s LGBTQ staff inclusion network. She received her Master’s in Public Health from the University of Washington in 2008.
