NCTE, HRC call on CDC to investigate denial of breast cancer screenings to transgender women

In response to news reports that an uninsured transgender woman in Colorado who found a lump in her breast was denied federally subsidized mammography based on federal guidance that she is "not genetically female,” the Human Rights Campaign and the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) called on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to investigate and change any discriminatory guidelines.
