Health Services for Transgender Youth

The Living With Change Center at Cincinnati Children’s provides an accepting atmosphere and services for patients 5-24 years old. Our team of specialists is in a unique position to provide medical and psychosocial support for these children and their families.

Funded By Love

Chris and Jessica Cicchinelli helped elevate Cincinnati’s pediatric transgender care with a momentous donation to further Cincinnati Children’s quality care, training and research. The center was named "Living with Change" after their personal foundation, which was born out of love for their daughter LC. The family’s personal experience led them to understand the great need for timely and patient-centered care for all gender-variant children.

What Is ‘Transgender’?

Transgender is an umbrella term for people who experience their gender differently from their gender at birth. These individuals experience a consistent and persistent discomfort with gender identity, causing extreme distress. Gender identity is one’s psychological sense of being male, female, some of both or neither.
