The Robert Eads Health Partnership was formed in memory of Robert Eads, a transman who suffered under the transphobic and discriminatory health care system in Georgia. In 1999, Robert Eads died of ovarian cancer after being refused treatment by dozens of doctors in and around the Atlanta area. The Southern Comfort Conference is proud to sponsor the Robert Eads Health Fair, offering lower exams for transmen and trans-masculine individuals at no cost. This fair is hosted by Feminist Health Center, a non-profit organization that provides health services in a safe, trans-affirmative environment. FHC’s protocols are designed to reduce barriers to health care for transgender individuals without compromising the quality of services they provide to all clients.
