We are excited for you to join us for this exciting event! The conference planning committee has arranged for many outstanding speakers, programs, and a post conference social hour for you to enjoy while you are with us.
This conference will be a unique experience to bring together students, health practitioners, health care leaders, and community members alike from Southern California. We hope you will have the opportunity to learn from one another, develop new friendships, and learn how to be an advocate within your community.
Attendees will have the following tracks to choose from:
Track 1: HEALING SELF
Workshops will highlight the importance of maintaining wellness and wholeness among those who look after the health of others. Topics such as work/life balance as an LGBTQIA+ provider, spiritual health, and mindfulness will be explored in this track.
Track 2: HEALING PATIENTS
Workshops in this track will focus on caring for those who remain marginalized in traditional healthcare narratives. Eating disorders in transgender communities and care of sex workers will be among the discussed topics.
Track 3: HEALING COMMUNITIES
Health for the individual rarely occurs in a vacuum; therefore, we must attend to systemic factors that influence individual wellness. In this track, we will examine issues such as community mental health and structural vulnerability in health disparities.
