White House LGBT Conference on HIV/AIDS.

Next week, the White House is hosting the next in its series of conferences on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues and the topic of focus will be HIV/AIDS. Hosted by the White House Office of Public Engagement and the White House Office of National AIDS Policy in partnership with Morehouse School of Medicine, the conference will take place on Thursday, April 19, 2012 from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM at the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta.

The White House LGBT Conference on HIV/AIDS will provide advocates, community leaders, and members of the public an opportunity to engage with representatives of the Obama Administration on issues related to the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the LGBT community and HIV/AIDS-related health disparities, with a specific focus on the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

Participants will receive updates from senior officials from The White House and key agencies and departments, connect with Federal government resources and opportunities through workshop sessions, and provide valuable feedback through the “Open Space” process.

Space is limited and registration is required. Registration will be open until Thursday, April 12th or until we reach capacity.

Prior conferences in this series have focused on housing and homelessness, safe schools and communities, and health.

Miguel Gomez is the director of and senior communications advisor in the Office of HIV/AIDS Policy at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. (Cross-posted from the blog.)
