2022 Wisconsin LGBTQ+ Health Summit

April 14, 2022

The summit is FREE for students.

Join us at the VIRTUAL Wisconsin LGBTQ+ Health Summit

We invite healthcare practitioners, faculty, students, and members of the wider LGBTQ+ community to attend this unique conference. Connect and network with thought leaders and each other as we explore how to build an inclusive and just culture of health. 

This LIVE summit strives to educate and engage the health professions about LGBTQ+ health and create new pathways to serve LGBTQ+ communities. You will find community and support here as well as the latest best practices for improving LGBTQ+ health outcomes. We promise this experience will inspire you!

Practice Gap and Needs

One of the goals of Healthy People 2020 is to “Improve the health, safety, and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals.” To accomplish this, it is critical that the entire healthcare team becomes more knowledgeable in providing care to members of LGBTQ+ community to improve patient outcomes. 

Many health professionals have not received any education on gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation during their initial education or while in practice. For this reason, language, communication skills, and protocols are needed in order to build trust with and provide health care for LGBTQ+ populations. 

Members of the healthcare team and academics will benefit from increasing their knowledge of unique health factors within the LGBTQ+ community, best practices for improving patient outcomes, and how to advocate for this population.

    Target Audience

    We intend this activity for nurses, physicians, physician assistants, pharmacists, psychologists, social workers, university faculty, staff, and students in the healthcare professions, LGBTQ+ community members and others with interest in healthcare for LGBTQ+ populations.

    Global Learning Objectives

    As a result of participating in this activity, the participant as a member of the healthcare team will be able to: 
    1. Describe strategies and unique factors for serving LGBTQ+ communities
    2. Explain best practices to advocate and improve LGBTQ+ health outcomes  
    3. Develop strategic networks by attending interactive workshops, sessions, and a networking opportunity
