Keynote Speaker: Why Trans Health Matters
Healthcare Access Manager, Ingersoll Gender Center
The Transforming Queer Health: An Interprofessional LGBTQTSIA+ Health Conference (formerly the UW Interprofessional LGBTQ Health Conference) is a community-organized and led event promoting the exploration of the health care needs of LGBTQTSIA+ communities. The conference will provide a forum to share knowledge and research across disciplines, invite cross-disciplinary critique and conversation, and collaborate with community partners. Through discussions around institutionalized racism in health care, addressing LGBTQTSIA+ erasure in health care curriculum, engaging clinicians and researchers in social justice and advocacy, establishing an interdisciplinary network of LGBTQTSIA+ health professionals, and educating current and future health care providers, this event aims to promote the advancement of LGBTQTSIA+ health.
We invite interested individuals to attend this conference, including but not limited to: undergraduate and graduate students, university faculty/staff, current health care workers, researchers, health policy specialists, advocates, and community members interested in addressing health equity issues for LGBTQTSIA+ individuals.
Our priority is to make our conference accessible to our attendees. Please let us know if you have questions regarding the accessibility of the event or if there is a way we can better support your attendance. You can reach the planning committee at firstname.lastname@example.org

We acknowledge the land we sit and occupy today as the traditional home of the Duwamish, Tulalip, Muckleshoot, and Suquamish tribal nations. Without them we would not have access to this working, teaching, and learning environment. We take the opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land who are still here.
