All medical school faculty and administrators* interested in LGBT climate and curriculum concerns are warmly invited to attend this ground-breaking event, regardless of their level of experience with LGBT topics in academic medicine. The Summit is designed to follow up on the AAMC's GLBT Recommendations, which call upon medical schools to address LGBT needs.
The Summit will provide a day-plus of intensive, interactive information-sharing, inspiration, and networking around these emerging topics. Participants will receive the resources they need to enhance LGBT equity and inclusion at their home campuses.
*While attendance at the Summit is limited to medical school faculty and administrators, medical students (and others with an interest in LGBT medical concerns) are warmly invited to attend the Third Annual UCSF LGBTI Health Forum in February 2011. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to join the Forum mailing list.
