The 2014 LGBT Health Forum

Global LGBT Health & Rights

 

 


Summary

The annual LGBT Health Forum is a high profile public event that showcases the accomplishments of LGBT Health Policy and Practice students and shines a spotlight on vital health issues facing LGBT people in the United States and globally, including such topics as insurance reform, DOMA, human rights, and HIV/AIDS, among others. The Forum features talks and a roundtable discussion with researchers, activists, and policy experts in the area of focus. Participants take stock of progress and share ideas in person as well as through a simultaneous worldwide webcast of the event to those unable to attend in person. The event also offers several ways for the program to recognize and promote corporate, foundation, and individual donors.
