The average life expectancy of a trans woman of color is 35, and these women face constant violence and discrimination. Going to the doctor is often humiliating. With TURNNT (Trying to Understand Relationships, Networks and Neighborhoods in Trans Women of Color), Columbia University hopes its study will improve that care. This video attracted nearly 1,000 site visitors in three months, with 12% of visitors taking the eligibility survey.
