Target Audience

All interested healthcare professionals.


Join us for our annual LGBTQ Health & Wellness Conference with Des Moines University to bring healthcare providers and LGBTQ community members together to connect and learn. This virtual conference allows healthcare providers to gain valuable knowledge about best practices for serving LGBTQ folks and have the chance to meet and build trust with LGBTQ individuals. LGBTQ community members have the chance to learn more about LGBTQ-inclusive healthcare resources in their area, gain system navigation knowledge, and develop relationships with healthcare providers.
