Hi, Chase Anderson here! Very humbled and excited to be training at UCSF as a Child Psychiatry Fellow. My interests in medicine are around advocacy for LGBTQ+ and URM populations. I hope to help as many kids as I can feel safe with their own minds, and to help families heal.
Outside of the hospital, I like to write op-eds about race, LGBTQ+ matters, diversity, minority stress, and other topics (including how they relate to psychiatry), give talks at universities around minority stress, read fantasy novels, go for long walks, group dinners with friends - socially distanced during coronavirus of course, and talking about how to make the world better.
I'm also active on Twitter (in addition to writing and giving talks), where I speak about racism, homophobia, and bigotry in medicine and the wider world. This is in addition to working with others through Twitter around activism and using the hashtags #GayMedTwitter/#LGBTQinHealthcare and #BlackMedTwitter to unite with other minoritized physicians and healthcare workers. My handle is @ChaseTMAnderson. I look forward to connecting with you!
