Deadline extended for lesbian health summit proposals

The deadline to submit workshop proposals for this year’s National Lesbian Health Summit, with the theme “Expanding Our Movement,” has been extended until January 21.

The summit, organized by the Lesbian Health Research Center at UCSF with a broad national coalition of LGBTQ health experts, is scheduled March 6-8 in San Francisco.

Summit organizers seek proposals that address the well-being of lesbians, bisexual women, queer women, and transgenders. Some panelist and workshop presenters include pioneers in lesbian and queer women’s health: Rebecca Fox, director of the National Coalition for LGBT Health; Dr. Sandra Hernandez, CEO of the San Francisco Foundation; Marjorie J. Hill, Ph.D., CEO of the Gay Men’s Health Crisis; former state Senator Sheila James Kuehl (D-Santa Monica); and Caitlin Ryan, Ph.D., director of adolescent health initiatives at San Francisco State University’s Cesar E. Chavez Institute.
