The Network for LGBT Health Equity is meeting for our first in-person convening of 2011. As our third meeting, this will be our largest meeting yet as we convene to make important decisions discussing our current structure and determining our future course.

9 of our 10 active Steering Committee members and staff are charged with clarifying our vision and goals. We are continuing to define our program goals for both tobacco and expansion to direct our future work.

While here we will we also consider applicants to fill our three open Steering Committee positions as well as considering new branding. We have some logos to consider which we will share shortly for you all to consider the best options.

Following our Steering Committee, we will participating in the First LGBT Health Summit which we co-sponsored with the coordinators (local advocates and the National Latino Tobacco Control Network.) Later there will be a conference on tobacco which Scout and Franciso will present on LGBT tobacco trainings.  Also impressive this past weekend, Scout and Francisco were involved with a training of 700 local healthcare providers on LGBT cultural competency.
