The 8th Annual Out for Health Conference will be hosted by McGovern Medical School from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 23 via Cisco Webex.
Out for Health is a medical conference founded and organized by students across all Texas medical schools in order to address the needs of the LGBTQIA+ population. The conference creates spaces for students, faculty, and community members to come together and discuss challenges faced by these patients. The event unites students and health professionals across disciplines to learn how to provide more inclusive health care.
The theme of the 2021 conference is “intersectionality,” recognizing the marginalization of minority groups within the LGBTQIA+ community. By drawing parallels between the current Black Lives Matter movement and the queer liberation movement of the 1960s, and between the current COVID-19 pandemic and the AIDS epidemic, the conference strives to empower the healthcare field to identify and fight systemic discrimination on all levels.
This year, Earl Fowlkes, chairman of the LGBT Caucus at the Democratic National Committee, will deliver the keynote speech titled “Out of the Shadows: The Intersectionality of Black LGBTQ+ Physical and Mental Health.”
When: January 26, 2021 - 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
