Although there is growing social acceptance of LGBTQ individuals, this population still faces health disparities due to stigma and discrimination. In the clinical context, LGBTQ individuals may experience subpar care and worse health outcomes. 

The goal of this talk is to discuss issues affecting LGBTQ groups to identify strategies for providing inclusive, high-quality healthcare for all.

Provost Lecture Series

The world of health care is facing unprecedented social, political and financial challenges.

One of the most proactive and productive things we can do in this era of change is to learn from each other and other leaders with knowledge of the current issues that scientists, educators, health care providers and staff members of an academic medical center may face.

The Provost's Lecture Series was created to invite experts to our community to share their unique perspectives at UTMB, to engage us in discussion and inspire us as we work together to improve health here and around the globe.
