2021 Southern LGBTQ Health Symposium

Thursday, August 12, 2021 12:00 PM - Thursday, September 16, 2021 1:00 PM (CDT)


Register now for the upcoming 2021 Southern LGBTQ Health Symposium. This virtual series features experts from around the region discussing health issues affecting the LGBTQ community. As healthcare is more difficult to access in Southern states, the gathering is a great opportunity to connect and share available resources. Providers, trainees, students, and community members are encouraged to attend. 


This year, we will be hosting a series of virtual lectures on Zoom. All sessions will begin on Thursdays at 12:00 pm CDT/1:00 pm EDT.


Go to bit.ly/2021SouthernLGBTQHealth to register! Participation is free to the community. Providers seeking CME or CE credit must pay a $75 fee for registration in order to receive the text codes. This activity has been approved for 7.5 (1.5 hours per session) AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
