Events this year include a patient-provider panel & community resource fair, a workshop on policies and practices relevant to LGBT patient care, a keynote address on diversity and inclusion from a leader in LGBT nursing, a screening of a documentary on transgender primary care, and the launching of a new training initiative at GRU.
