TRANSFORMING CARE 2017
LGBTQ & HIV/AIDS Health Equity Conference
The Equitas Health Institute for LGBTQ Health Equity is hosting the 2017 Transforming Care: LGBTQ & HIV/AIDS Health Equity Conference on October 19-20 at The Ohio State University Fawcett Center. Activists, academics, community members, and health & social service professionals are encouraged to attend this two-day conference that addresses health disparities affecting the LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS community.
The conference will provide a unique opportunity for professionals and community members to come together to share not only research and best practices but practical information like family planning, wellness activities, and health and safety initiatives.
We are happy to announce that the following speakers will be joining us in 2017.
Gary J. Gates, PhD
A recognized expert on the geography and demography of the LGBTQ population and a former research director at UCLA’s Williams Institute. Gates is responsible for many of the best estimates of the size and scope of America’s LGBTQ population.
“Assumptions about people are flimsy, numbers are solid. The reality of our political system is that you don’t really count unless you are counted.”
