APHA LGBTQ Health Caucus Call for Abstracts and Reviewers
Deadline: February 20, 2020 (abstracts) and February 10, 2020 (reviewers)
The American Public Health Association LGBTQ Health Caucus is now accepting abstracts for the upcoming meeting being held October 24-28, 2020 in San Francisco. Abstracts focused on any aspect of LGBTQ public health will be considered. This year, abstracts are especially welcome related to activism/community organizing and LGBTQ health; the health of Indigenous and Two-Spirit LGBTQ people; the health of LGBTQ people of color; the impact of social policies and political climates on LGBTQ health; LGBTQ health and healthcare in San Francisco, CA; methodological issues in LGBTQ health research; and the reproductive health of LGBTQ people.
We have also opened our Call for Reviewers at https://apha.confex.com/apha/2020/lgbt/cfr.cgi and that deadline is February 10, 2020. Reviewing abstracts takes little time commitment and is a great way to contribute to LGBTQ health research. It's also an item to add to your CV to both demonstrate your involvement in a professional society and to show your LGBTQ health expertise. Everyone is welcome to apply (e.g., students, staff, postdocs, faculty) and you don't need to have previously attended APHA or be a member.
