Keynote Presentation: Healing Historical Traumas:
Panel 2: Community Member Discussion:
Panel 1: Surgeon Expert Discussion:
This series aims to make space for ongoing discussion on key topics in gender-affirming care, such as surgical navigation, developing trauma-informed systems of care, and increasing access to gender-affirming care. To achieve this end, ERA planned a schedule of events, consisting of two webinars and a half-day seminar, which will serve as an introduction to the 2020 Midwest LGBTQ Health Symposium (MLHS) to be held September 16-17, 2020 at Malcolm X College, Chicago, IL.
The philosophy of the learning series and the 2020 MLHS is to provide LGBTQ affirming standards of care and influence multidisciplinary health care professionals’ best practices. ERA values intersectional care that includes public health and social justice-centered frameworks, which inform our theme for 2020, “Being Healthy is a Radical Act.” For more information about the series, go here.
