2019 Transforming Care Conference Abstract Submission Form

 

Thank you for your interest in submitting a proposal for Transforming Care: LGBTQ+ Health Equity and HIV/AIDS Conference held on October 17-18, 2019 at the Fawcett Center in Columbus, OH. This year’s conference theme - “Discover Differences. Break Barriers. Reduce Disparities.” Will focus on reducing health disparities by creating medical and behavioral health settings that are radically inclusive of those most in need of services. Workshops and plenary addresses will center the experiences of patients and clients and amplify those voices typically marginalized in healthcare forums.

Conference learning objectives:

  • Identify the differences and challenges of providing nuanced HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ+ centered care that is relevant and accessible to each patient’s/client’s race, ethnicity, class, spirituality, age, ability, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
  • Develop skills to increase positive health outcomes in LGBTQ+/PLWH of all races, ethnicities, classes, spiritualties, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, and gender identities.
  • Implement inclusive practices to eliminate or reduce health disparities in the LGBTQ+ and PLWH communities.
