36th GLMA Annual Conference on LGBT Health

 
GLMA’s Annual Conference is the premier, interdisciplinary LGBT health conference and the world’s largest scientific gathering devoted to LGBT health issues and concerns.

GLMA’s Annual Conference educates practitioners, policy advocates, educators, administrators, researchers and students—from across the health professions—about the unique health needs of LGBT individuals and families. The conference is a forum for discussion and exploration of how best to address these needs as well as the needs of LGBT health professionals and health profession students. GLMA’s Annual Conference also reports on research into the health needs of LGBT people.

The conference theme, Mind, Body, Spirit, and Policy: Holistic Approaches to LGBTQ Healthcare, will highlight the integration of mental, physical, and behavioral health in LGBTQ communities, taking into consideration the intersection of sexual orientation and gender identity with other identities. Over the past year, the LGBTQ people, along with other vulnerable communities, have endured a continuous assault on their rights, taking a toll on their mental and physical well-being. The GLMA Annual Conference on LGBTQ Health will focus on comprehensive, team-based approaches to healthcare and research that deepen understanding and develop competency to ensure quality care for LGBTQ individuals. Abstracts and proposals addressing this theme will be prioritized.

GLMA’s Annual Conference draws over 400 participants from various health professions including physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, mental and behavioral health specialists and social workers, dentists, pharmacists, researchers, educators, health policy specialists, advocates, administrators, public health practitioners, health profession students and others interested in improving health for LGBTQ individuals.

Registration will open in April 2018.
