7th Annual LGBTQI Health Forum

February 20, 2015 to February 21, 2015
UCSF Parnassus Ave

Friday, February 20 (evening) to Saturday, February 21, 21015
UCSF Parnassus Campus, HSW building


REGISTRATION via Eventbrite here



All interested health professional/graduate students and community members, whether LGBTQI or not, are warmly invited to attend this popular annual event. All attendees must purchase tickets. UCSF students are also eligible to receive elective course credit by registering through their student portal for Clinical Pharmacy 152.13.



The Forum is being held at UCSF's Parnassus campus, in the HSW Building on Parnassus Ave., easily accessed by public transportation or car. Directions and maps are available here.

Please note that street parking is extremely difficult. The best parking option is the UCSF Millberry lot, accessed via a ramp down from 500 Parnassus (across from the Medical Sciences Building). There is a parking fee, even on weekends.

The Forum location is wheelchair accessible.



Forum plenaries will focus on LGBTQI health disparities and barriers to care. A skills-building workshop will address the question “How do I ask that?,” and attendees will hear client stories in an LGBTQI patient panel.


Keynote Speaker will be Kate Bornstein, author of Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us and My Gender Workbook: How to Become a Real Man, a Real Woman, the Real You, or Something Else Entirely.

Breakout topics will include

Transgender health 101
Transgender health 201
LGBTQ youth and mental health
HIV transmission prevention: an update
Substance abuse and harm reduction in LGBTQ populations
Puberty blockers and care of gender non-conforming youth
Bisexual invisibility

The event will include dinner the evening of Friday, February 20th, as well as breakfast, lunch, and a reception on Saturday, February 21st.

Undergraduates and others with a strong interest in LGBTQI health are welcome to attend, although the Forum is designed for health professional/graduate students.
