UPDATE: Inclusive Health Conference – Cancellation due to COVID-19

Dear friends,

Given the current Alberta Health Services recommendations against gatherings of >50 people, especially those with critical infrastructure staff, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Inclusive Health Conference.

We deeply appreciate your support, understanding, and interest in learning about LGBTQ+ health. This was the 7th year of the conference and had a record attendance of over 150 healthcare workers, students, and community members – with registrations climbing daily. We think this speaks to a growing dedication to improving LGBTQ+ health in Alberta and beyond.

A big thank you to our amazing speakers, who dedicated time and effort towards preparing for the conference and furthering our collective education. Registrants have been contacted via email with more details regarding refunds.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at sga@ualberta.ca.
