The Washington University School of Medicine has been scrutinized after offering a course that taught about puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and how Western nutrition is linked to racism.
A summer course at the university in St. Louis, Missouri, called “Health Equity and Justice” allegedly saw professors advocate for cross-sex hormones but fail to acknowledge the neural impact of the practice, according to Fox News Digital.
