The 2018 Midwest LGBTQ Health Symposium (MLHS) will explore this year’s theme “Moving Towards Health Equity. Strengthening our Community of Care.” The two-day gathering of healthcare professionals, social service providers, advocates, and researchers will highlight innovative best practices in LGBTQ patient-centered clinical care as well as community-driven approaches to addressing health disparities. Join us as we explore critical topics in the field such as HIV elimination, racial equity in LGBTQ care, addressing violence, reproductive justice and others as both healthcare providers and advocates for meaningful change.
