2020 Midwest LGBTQ Health Symposium
This year Chicago, along with the rest of the world, has experienced an unparalleled shift in the health care paradigm. Health care professionals have been challenged and risen to the task, to serve in innovative and community-driven approaches to address the current COVID-19 pandemic. We have been forced to look at fundamental practices and consider radical perspectives as we continue to prepare for a new normal.
In keeping with the spirit and theme of the Midwest LGBTQ Health Symposium 2020, “Being Healthy is a Radical Act,” the planning committee values the health and safety of our guests above all else. As champions of LGBTQ health, we have a responsibility to protect the health of our community and to respect the needs of medically vulnerable people who might not be able to safely interact with others until this pandemic is resolved. For these reasons, we have made the decision to move the two-day, September 16 & 17, in-person conference to a virtual event
That being said, virtual does not mean less valuable. We are excited to take advantage of this opportunity and have acquired cutting edge technology to transition our keynote speakers, breakout sessions, presentations, and networking events online and are working diligently to hold an event that is just as engaging and informative as an in-person experience.
