Population Health Spotlight Speaker Series

Population Health Spotlight Series 2023-24: Health Equity and LGBTQ+ Health

"Health Equity and LGBTQ+ Health" is the theme of the Dornsife School of Public Health's 2023-24 Population Health Spotlight series.

Many structural and systemic factors impact the health of LGBTQ+ people, creating health-related challenges and disparities. Recent legislative actions across the United States have further amplified these impacts and have highlighted the need to address LGBTQ health as a core component of population health and health equity. Speakers will discuss a range of pressing issues related to LGBTQ health and discuss implications for policies and action.
