LGBTQ Conference and Expo on April 6

Posted By on Wed, Mar 28, 2012 at 10:00 AM

There's still time to register for the first annual event, "Let's Get Better Together: A Quality Look at Behavioral Health Care in Arizona."

The April 6 forum at Sheraton Tucson Hotels and Suites will discuss building a health care system for those who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Queer, according to a press release from the Community Partnership of Southern Arizona.

Also in the press release:


According to Healthy People 2020, research suggests that LGBT individuals face health disparities linked to social stigma, discrimination and denial of their civil and human rights. Discrimination against LGBT persons has been associated with high rates of psychiatric disorders, substance abuse and suicide.

The event will feature keynote speaker, Susan Stryker, who is the director of the UA's LGBTQ institute.

March 31 is the last day to register for the April 6 event.
