Please mark your calendars for the next installment of our Current Issues in LGBTQ Health lecture series featuring Lauren Beach, PhD, JD, and Sumanas Jordan, MD, PhD, of The Advancing Opportunities in Clinical and Translational Equity in SGM Health (ADVOCATE SGM Health) Program, our institute's newest program. The title of their presentation will be "ADVOCATE SGM Health: A Programmatic Model to Translate Research to Structural Change in Policy and Practice."

The ADVOCATE program focuses on advocating for good quality care and research-practice-policy improvements in community and public health. The program has a special emphasis on health systems, health care, and health equality within the LGBTQ+ community. ADVOCATE centers the community throughout the research process to identify gaps in treatment and how clinicians and clinical practice can be adapted to better understand clinical care needs and experiences of the LGBTQ+ community.

An ultimate goal of this program is to translate our research into real-world practices and policy changes that positively impact LGBTQ+ patients.
