In celebration of our fifth anniversary, ISGMH is hosting a year-long Leaders in LGBTQ Health lecture series throughout 2020. The series will focus on the last 25 years of LGBTQ health research and the people who made—and continue to make—groundbreaking strides in the field. All Leaders in LGBTQ Health lectures will take place at Northwestern University Chicago and Evanston campuses and will be open to the public. For those who cannot attend in-person, lectures will also be available via livestream.
