The annual UCSF LGBTQI Health Forum is a unique, student-organized program that provides attendees the opportunity to learn more about the health care needs of the LGBTQI community and become better prepared to serve LGBTQI patients in the clinical arena. Established nine years ago in response to global trends and national reports showing disparities in LGBTQI health care, this one day, 10-hour event, provides not only a rich educational experience, but a critical networking opportunity for students in all disciplines of health care. The forum attracts over 300 inter-professional health students and continues to grow every year.
The Forum is a collaboration between the UCSF LGBT Resource Center and the LGBTQ Student Association. Sponsors of our forum have included Bay Area Physicians for Human Rights (BAPHR), the UCSF Chancellor's Endowment Fund, and the UCSF Committee on LGBT Issues. We have featured local and national health experts and activists, including Stuart Gaffney and John Lewis (Marriage Equality USA), and Eric Sawyer (Act UP New York, UNAIDS).
