GLMA’s Annual Conference is the premier, interdisciplinary LGBTQ health conference and the world’s largest scientific gathering devoted to LGBTQ health issues and concerns. GLMA’s Annual Conference educates practitioners, policy advocates, educators, administrators, researchers and students—from across the health professions—about the unique health needs of LGBTQ individuals and families. The conference is a forum for discussion and exploration of how best to address these needs as well as the needs of LGBTQ health professionals and health profession students. GLMA’s Annual Conference also reports on research into the health needs of LGBTQ people. This year's conference theme, LGBTQ Health Across the Lifespan, highlights the importance of understanding the ever-changing healthcare needs of LGBTQ people throughout their lives, from birth to end-of-life care. The GLMA Annual Conference on LGBTQ Health will focus on comprehensive and team-based approaches to healthcare and research that optimize the mental and physical wellbeing of LGBTQ people from all age cohorts, while taking into consideration the intersection of sexual orientation, gender identity, and age with other identities.
