Job Information

RAD Remedy’s mission is to connect trans, gender non-conforming, intersex, and queer folks to accurate, safe, respectful, and comprehensive care in order to improve individual and community health.

In June of 2015 we launched the beta release of RAD (Referral Aggregator Database), a comprehensive and nationally-collaborative database currently in development that uses the referral lists of trusted community organizations and the detailed reviews of folks like you so we all get better care. Since then, we’ve been working on adding more providers and making it easier for you to find the care you need. Curious about the beta? Read more about the RAD beta launch.In early 2017, we aim to release the first-ever national standards for TGIQ health. Based on the CLAS standards (National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care) and adapted for our communities, these will establish community-driven best practices and competencies for providers to meet.

Later, we will assemble a nationwide, independent training database mapping trainings to competencies, creating a learning structure for providers and identifying gaps in existing training. Additionally, we’ll launch “RAD Certified,” where providers will supply evidence of continuing education they’ve taken or taught on topics related to our communities, and in turn, we will provide a special badge for them on the site and optimized search results for you.
