TRANSFORMING CARE CONFERENCE
OCTOBER 20-21, 2016 | COLUMBUS OHIO
TRANSFORMING CARE CONFERENCE 2016
Midwest Conference on LGBTQ Health Equity and HIV/AIDS
The Equitas Health Institute for LGBTQ Health Equity and the Ohio AIDS Coalition are excited to present the inaugural event, Transforming Care: Midwest Conference on LGBTQ Health Equity and HIV/AIDS.
In partnership with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center the event will take place October 20-21, 2016 at the Fawcett Center in Columbus, Ohio.
This event evolved as a result of the work of two Ohio-based coalitions. The Ohio AIDS Coalition introduced the Ohio Leadership Conference on HIV/AIDS in 1997 and the Central Ohio LGBTQ Health Coalition introduced the Central Ohio LGBTQ Health Equity Conference in 2015. For the first time these two events will come together to expand the mission of both conferences.
Transforming Care will bring together over 450 activists, academics, community members, health and social service professionals and others interested in reducing health disparities in the LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS community.
2016 Transforming Care: Ohio HIV/AIDS Pre-Conference
The Ohio AIDS Coalition (OAC) is excited to present the 2016 Transforming Care: Ohio HIV/AIDS Pre-Conference in partnership with Gilead Sciences, Inc. This event will take place on October 19, 2016 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Columbus, Ohio.
The Ohio HIV/AIDS Pre-Conference brings together consumer advocates for a one day event of workshops about advocacy, HIV, intersectionality, and more, in order to empower those living with HIV to advocate for themselves and their communities.
