LGBTQIA+ Health Summit
April 22 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
The LGBTQIA+ Health Summit is a place to get together to explore, query, and celebrate the Health & Wellness needs, projects, and strategies of our communities in an environment that is dedicated to and focused on our community and our collective LGBTQIA+ lived experiences. We will provide opportunities to bridge LGBTQIA+ people, faemily, and caregivers to direct service and care providers in hopes of better meeting the holistic needs of our communities.
Our goal is to give our various communities – embracing the intersections of the many identities we hold – an environment to connect and learn from each other. You will have the chance to compare notes on what is happening around the state, dig into questions of community care as well as systems change, and generally address the gap between care providers and community members.
The Summit will create a collaborative space to host the many intersections of health justice within the LGBTQIA+ people-centered care models. There will be healthcare provider specific content, community learning/practice spaces, lived-experience storytelling, and social convergence spaces that help strengthen all our relationships. An additional aim of the Summit is to increase capacity and ensure access to quality, culturally-affirming medical and mental health care for traditionally underserved communities, including LGBTQIA+ people who hold intersecting identities and create affinity spaces specific to intersecting LGBTQIA+ identities.
Participants will be asked to wear masks in all indoor spaces (except the dining areas) at VT Tech College.
