The University of Washington 1st Annual Interprofessional LGBTQ Health Conference is a community-organized and led event promoting the exploration of the health care needs of LGBTQ communities. The conference will provide a forum to share knowledge and research across disciplines, invite cross-disciplinary critique and conversation, and collaborate with community partners. Through discussions around institutionalized racism in health care, addressing LGBTQ erasure in health care curriculum, engaging clinicians and researchers in social justice and advocacy, establishing an interdisciplinary network of LGBTQ health professionals, and educating current and future health care providers, this event aims to promote the advancement of LGBTQ health.
We invite interested individuals to attend this conference, including undergraduate and graduate students of the health professions as well as faculty/staff of these programs, current health care workers, researchers, health policy specialists, advocates, and community members interested in addressing health equity issues for LGBTQ individuals.

Interested in Volunteering?
This conference would not be possible without the help of our volunteer team. Whether you are available all day or only for a couple of hours, we have a role for you!
We acknowledge the land we sit and occupy today as the traditional home of the Duwamish, Tulalip, Muckleshoot, and Suquamish tribal nations. Without them we would not have access to this working, teaching, and learning environment. We take the opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land who are still here.
Note: parking may be limited.
