Conference Details

Dates: March 28-29, 2020

Where: The Anlyan Center Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT

Sponsored by The Dean's Advisory Council for LGBTQI+ Affairs at Yale School of Medicine

The Q-Forward: Building LGBTQI+ Leaders in Health Care conference aims to engage and inspire future LGBTQI+ leaders in health care in the areas of research, clinical care, education, and policy/advocacy. It will feature keynote speakers, posters, interactive workshops with practical tools and strategies designed to address the unique challenges facing LGBTQI+ leaders.

Current health professional students (e.g., medical, nursing, physician assistant, podiatry, dentistry, clinical psychology, biomedical research, social work, and public health students) and university undergraduate students with an interest in health care as a profession are invited to attend. Though the content of the conference will be geared toward students, others with an interest in working with students to develop LGBTQI+ leaders in health care (e.g., residents, advanced trainees, and faculty) are invited to participate.

Registration for this conference is free and will be open in the fall. New information about the event details will be posted here. Check this page periodically for more information or contact LGBTQIaffairs@yale.edu for more information.

This is the second annual meeting of this conference, which was formerly known as "Q-Med."
