Acclaim Award for Excellence in Health Care
Jamie Buth, MD, MHCM
The 2017 Acclaim Awards Gala is only FOUR DAYS away, on Saturday, September 23. The Acclaim Awards Gala always gives us an opportunity to celebrate, briefly escape from our busy schedules, and have some fun as we come together to honor the people who devote much of their lives and careers to uplifting our community and making Louisiana a more accepting, loving, and beautiful place to live.
Today, we want to introduce you to Dr. Jamie Buth, MHCM, the recipient of this year’s award for work in Health Care.
Dr. Buth has been caring for transgender veterans since 1997. In 2016, she began to provide care for transgender veterans in central Louisiana through the Alexandria VA Medical Center and presented a poster on her work at the World Professional Association of Transgender Health 24th Biennial Scientific Symposium in Amsterdam, Netherlands: ‘Prevalence & Characteristics of Transsexuals Treated at a Veterans Health Administration Facility in New Orleans.’
Dr. Buth is also co-author of a book on transgender health care, “Medical Therapy and Health Maintenance for Transgender Men: A Guide for Health Care Providers.” She graduated from St. Louis Medical School and later obtained her Masters in Health Care Management from the Harvard School of Public Health. She is a board certified Internal Medicine Specialist and is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at Tulane University School of Medicine. She has two adult children, and presently resides with her wife and stepchild.
It is both a pleasure and an honor to present the award for excellence in Health Care to such an incredible member of our community as Dr. Jamie Buth. I know that you don’t want to miss the opportunity to applaud her and all of this year’s Acclaim Award recipients on September 23. We cannot wait to see you there!
Yours in Equality,
Executive Director, Forum for Equality
