A longtime advocate for patients, equality, and LGBT health, Dr. Ehrenfeld made international headlines on February 22, 2015, when he asked the newly appointed Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter his stance on letting transgender individuals serve in the military.
Today, Dr Erhenfeld lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his husband, and works for Vanderbilt University as a Professor of Anesthesiology, Surgery, Biomedical Informatics and Health Policy.
