Date: September 13, 2017 — all day!

In conjunction with the 35th Annual GLMA Conference on LGBT Health, September 13-16

Where: Philadelphia, PA

Registration now open!

 Our annual Summit has already become a lifeline for many LGBTQ nurses, and our allies who also thrive on the support and networking that this event provides!

Our leadership team has arranged another dynamite Nursing Summit program!  As in the past, the major feature will be opportunities to network and meet other nurses dedicated to improving LGBTQ health and healthcare. The program is packed with variety, including several “student pop-up presentations,” our “speed meeting” event, a skill-building feature, a report from LSU founders of a “safe zone” type of program for healthcare providers, and  keynote speakers Jose Pares-Avila, DNP, RN, ARNP, NP-C from Seattle and Dane Menkin, MSN, CRNP, AAHIVM from Philadelphia!

There are several ways to connect to the latest Summit news!
