The National LGBTQ Health Conference is an interdisciplinary translational research conference bringing together scientists, public health professionals, and healthcare providers to discuss issues affecting the health and wellbeing of the LGBTQ community. The largest scientific gathering of its kind in the United States, the conference also fosters professional development and provides networking opportunities. The conference is held every two years and its location alternates between Chicago and Atlanta. The 2021 conference will be held virtually.
The conference was founded in 2012 by the Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing (ISGMH) at Northwestern University and Center on Halsted, the largest LGBTQ community center in the Midwest. In 2019, Emory University joined the conference as a partner.
The next National LGBTQ Health Conference will take place virtually on May 20 – 21, 2021.
