Glma is calling for abstracts for its 35th Annual Conference on LGBT Health, which will be held September 13-16, 2017, in Philadelphia, PA.

Conference Theme:
From Resistance to Resilience: Filling the Gaps in LGBT Healthcare and Research, will highlight the significant gaps in LGBT healthcare and research. In a volatile political environment in which LGBT-affirming programs such as the Affordable Care Act are being dismantled, the GLMA Annual Conference on LGBT Health will focus on healthcare innovations and groundbreaking research that improve the health and well-being of LGBT patients and their families. Abstracts and proposals addressing this theme will be prioritized.

Special Emphasis: Leveraging the momentum established during the 34th GLMA Annual Conference on LGBT Health, GLMA will continue to place special emphasis on abstract topics that address the intersection of sexual orientation and gender identity with other identities, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, HIV status, ability, religion, immigration status, socioeconomic status and/or geographic location and their impact on health and healthcare.

*GLMA encourages the submission of clinically-focused, evidence-based abstracts.
