The excitement is brewing as we work through our last day in the office before we depart for Kansas City. We are prepared for a busy, productive, and fun week with the Summit and the National Conference on Tobacco or Health.
As you know the 8th National LGBT Health Equity Summit will be on Tuesday, August 14th at the Kansas City Marriott (Trianon C & D).

Also, make sure you attend Beyond Fabulous and event honoring the Network and to top it all off Pandora Boxx will be in the house.
