Dr. Mehringer earned his undergraduate degree at MIT, graduated AOA from medical school at Case Western, and completed his pediatrics residency and an additional chief year at the University of Vermont, where he co-founded Vermont's first clinic dedicated to providing gender affirming care for transgender youth. He completed his fellowship training in Adolescent Medicine at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. He has worked for many years to advocate and improve health services for LGBTQ youth.
