For Health is a medical conference founded and organized by students
across all Texas health science centers in order to address the needs of
the 2SLGBTQI+ population. Each year a different Texas health science
center hosts the conference, with this year’s conference being held in
Galveston, Texas at the University of Texas Medical Branch. This will be
the 7th annual Out For Health Conference and this year’s conference
promises to continue the trend of growth and expansion to the
conference. Join this year’s conference as we raise the voices of the
marginalized and come together as medical professionals to learn how to
provide more inclusive health care. This year’s conference will provide
CME, CNE, and CEU credit for attendance.
