To bring together health care and allied service providers throughout the Sacramento region to improve health outcomes for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ+) people and their families. We invite emerging leaders and established experts to a welcoming space to share innovative ideas, teach critical leadership skills, and form new networks with other agents of change.
This conference will bring together health care providers from the Greater Sacramento area to build transformational leadership and community with the common goal of culturally competent care for all LGBTQ+ people.
- Understand the basic medical needs of LGBTQ+ patients, especially those who identify as transgender and/or gender-nonconforming.
- Identify steps to educate and counsel colleagues and administrators on LGBTQ+ cultural competency to embed system wide progress toward more LGBTQ+ welcoming health care institutions.
- Increase providers’ awareness of and adherence to LGBTQ+ affirming policies and practices at UC Davis Health and beyond.
