LGBT Symposium for Medical Students in San Diego
The LGBT Symposium at the Empowering Future Physicians Conference in San Diego on October 21, 2011, is a hands-on survival guide for LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual) and ally pre-med and medical students. Sessions will begin with an introduction to LGBT health and then focus on health policy, student interest groups and healthcare inclusion within medical schools. Small group discussion dispersed between sessions will inspire students to consider LGBT health professions and empower participants to use the material covered in producing powerful and meaningful change, whether in their local academic setting through LGBT health inclusion within curricula or in their communities at large. And of course, there will be many opportunities to build relationships with fellow attendees and share plans for future activities! Allies are welcomed and encouraged to attend!

Speakers include GLMA’s Executive Director, Hector Vargas, JD. For more information on the LGBT Symposium, please click here. Posted 10/6/2011

The conference offers CHES credits for public health professionals and a broad range of innovative workshops, plenaries, networking, organizing, and social activities to meld our "rainbow alphabet" together around our work in the field of LGBTI health. The 2011 National LGBTI Health Summit is dedicated to preserving and improving the emotional, physical, spiritual, mental, and social health and wellness of LGBTI people. The theme of this year’s summit is "At the Crossroads," which emphasizes the summit’s mission to reach members of LGBTI communities who are marginalized and experience health disparities unique to race/ethnicity, age, and disability; as well as disparities on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender.
