Dr. Carl Streed Jr is an Assistant Professor at Boston University School of Medicine and the Research Lead for the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery at Boston Medical Center. After attending medical school and residency in Internal Medicine at Johns Hopkins he completed fellowship in General Internal Medicine at Brigham & Women’s. Nationally, he has chaired the American Medical Association Advisory Committee on LGBTQ Issues, served on the board of GLMA: Health Professionals Advancing LGBTQ Equality, and currently serves as the President-Elect of the US Professional Association for Transgender Health.

To achieve equity in healthcare access, health, and community well-being, Dr. Streed actively incorporate the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility into his work as a clinician-investigator. As such, his personal and professional pursuit for a more equitable and inclusive society is focused on elevating voices often ignored and redistributing power. His clinical, training, advocacy, and research initiatives regarding the health and well-being of marginalized persons, particularly sexual and gender minority (e.g., lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer [LGBTQ] persons) populations, have been used to influence and inform institutional, state, and federal policy as well as clinical care, academic research, and scholarship.

Dr. Streed’s efforts to improve the health and well-being of sexual and gender minority individuals and communities have earned him several awards, notably from the University of Chicago and Johns Hopkins University Alumni Associations, the American Medical Association Foundation, the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, as well as recognition from the Obama White House.

As the Research Lead for the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery at Boston Medical Center he collaborates with researchers, clinicians, and communities to assess and address the health and well-being of transgender and gender diverse individuals.
