LGBTQ Health Conference is May 30-June 1

April 22, 2019

Emory University will host the 6th National LGBTQ Health Conference on May 31–June 1 2019. Rollins,  PRISM Health, and the Office of the Provost at Emory University are sponsoring the conference, which will take place in Atlanta this year for the first time since its inception. The National LGBTQ Health Conference is an interdisciplinary translational research forum that brings together scientists, public health professionals, and health care providers to discuss issues related to the health and wellbeing of the LGBTQ community. The conference will include breakout sessions, symposiums, and panels on many LGBTQ health topics including trans health, adolescent health, HIV and youth, and mental health, and it will also include poster presentations of current and emerging health research and programs for LGBTQ adults and adolescents.

In conjunction with the conference, Emory University and the NIH Sexual & Gender Minority Research Office are collaborating to hold a pre-conference Sexual & Gender Minority (SGM) Research Workshop on May 30, 2019. The workshop is primarily targeted at students, post-docs, and early investigators who are planning on submitting an NIH grant application within the next two years. The workshop aims to increase participants’ understanding of the NIH structure and grant processes, encourage mentorships between participants and extramural researchers who have successfully obtained funding from NIH, and provide participants with the opportunity to network with established researchers in SGM health. The workshop is free, but registration is required. Space is limited.
