Clinical care of early female puberty is troubled by unsound race and ethnicity based guidance, which is compounded by inadequately addressed sex-related psychosocial health outcomes. Given the limited empiric data on race and ethnicity based differences in clinical care of early female puberty, this project aims to first conduct quantitative and qualitative research to gather the necessary empiric data to then generate a set of recommendations to advance equitable, race and ethnicity conscious, patient-informed, clinical care of early female puberty based on a new puberty justice framework.
