TIC in October is fast-approaching and the committee is working hard to get logistics underway. We have a few notes to pass along as the conference date draws nearer.

We are pleased to announce that we've launched the updated version of our website, which you can check out at http://www.uvm.edu/~tic. It's still undergoing construction, so check back frequently for new updates. Registration should be up and running within the next month or so. We'll send out an email letting you know as soon as we open it up.

In other news, we are very excited to announce our keynote and plenary speakers! Respectively, they are Kate Bornstein and Imani Henry. Below you will find brief biographies and background information for
them both.

We hope everyone is enjoying the summer weather and we look forward to
seeing you all in the fall!

Anyone know when  the Northeast Regional FTM Campout at Cauldron Farm in Hubbardston, MA will be held [in terms of a date]?

Couple of questions folks. First off on Fischer's website it really doesn't say the costs nor talks about top surgery. What i would like to know is how much the surgery is plus if you live in Massachusetts and traveled to her for surgery how much would that cost and would i be better off going the plane or train method? Secondly * for the Massachusetts guys* in terms of therapists which one do you recommend? Third: Has anyone used Dr. Medalie in Cleveland, Ohio and if so how was his services and results? Last but not least *another one for the Massachusetts guys* how many have gone to the Sydney Borum Health Center and is it reachable by the T like Compass? Also, when i call what should i say? I mean when i first call someone i do alot of umms and stuttering.

Thanks in advance

At first, i thought i would just do top surgery but starting T has become more dominant in my mind lately. I have decided i want to begin T. I know you must wait three months while visiting a Endocrinologist. What i want to know is those who are on T which Endocrinologist whocdid you go to in Massachusetts *if you went to one in Massachusetts* and who would you recommend? Plus do you just set up an appointment with them? Another question i would like to ask is if i should change my name now or later? 
Thanks in advance.
