Executive Summary

The Transforming Queer Health Conference is the 2nd Annual Interprofessional LGBTQTSIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Two-Spirit, Intersex, Asexual+) Health Conference at UW, scheduled for later in 2020. This is a student-organized and -led interprofessional and environmentally-conscious conference that promotes exploration of the health and wellness needs of LGBTQTSIA+ communities, and encourages social and environmental sustainability. We aim to improve the social and environmental sustainability of UW, through environmentally-conscious efforts to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion. This conference highlights student leadership and engagement and is centered around education and community engagement, with the overall goal being influencing behavior change across disciplines, institutions and communities. It is our hope that students, professionals, and community members who attend this event will leave with a broader understanding of current multidisciplinary efforts in LGBTQTSIA+ health and wellness and will expand their network of current and future health and wellness professionals and advocates.
