Call for Abstracts

GLMA is calling for abstracts for its 34th Annual Conference on LGBT Health, which will be held September 14-17, 2016, in St. Louis, MO.

The GLMA Annual Conference on LGBT Health is the premier, interdisciplinary LGBT health conference and the world’s largest scientific gathering devoted to LGBT health issues and concerns. The conference educates practitioners, policy advocates, educators, administrators, researchers and students—from across the health professions—about the unique health needs of LGBT individuals and families. 

Conference Theme

Intersectionality in LGBT Communities: Gateways to New Understandings will highlight the intersection of sexual orientation and gender identity with other identities, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, HIV status, ability, religion, immigration status, socioeconomic status and/or geographic location and their impact on health and healthcare access. Abstracts and proposals addressing this theme will be prioritized.

Special Emphasis: Primary Care for LGBT Individuals 

In addition to the general topics detailed on the Call for Abstracts webpage, GLMA is issuing a special call for abstracts addressing primary care to improve the health and well-being of LGBT individuals.

*GLMA encourages the submission of clinically-focused, evidence-based abstracts.
