Hello! My name is Kerin “KB” Berger and I am the founder of Queer MEDucation. I am a Physician Assistant licensed under the National Certification Commission of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) and the Physician Assistant Board of California. My clinical practice includes queer health, sexual health, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), HIV care, and dermatology.
I believe foundational changes in medical training is the key to future progress. In 2016, I began piloting a series of lectures for physician assistant students at Charles Drew University (CDU) to increase LGBTQI and nonbinary cultural competency and humility. Through several PubMed searches, I compiled a list of topics most relevant to LGBTQI and nonbinary health. The LGBTQI and nonbinary lectures are now part of the formal didactic curriculum at CDU. In addition, I am a guest lecturer at University of Southern California Physician Assistant Program. The goal is to educate as many students and providers as possible on the subject matter to better the health outcomes of individuals.
My clinical and educational experiences lead to a platform that connects the medical community and the general population to LGBTQI and nonbinary health care. The Queer MEDucation podcast is a series of interviews with medical experts, mental health professionals, students, advocates, community members, and allies that are passionate about improving the health and well being of queer people.
I currently reside in West Hollywood, California with the love of my life, Jordan and my pup, Rilo. I love to travel, cycle, hike, and create delicious cocktails.
Thank you for your interest in improving the lives of LGBTQI and nonbinary individuals.
