Population Health Spotlight Speaker Series – Dr. Gilbert Gonzales

January 24 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

This year’s Population Health Spotlight at the Dornsife School of Public Health will discuss a range of pressing issues related to LGBTQ+ health and discuss implications for policies and action.

Many structural and systemic factors impact the health of LGBTQ+ people, creating health related challenges and disparities. Recent legislative actions across the United States have further amplified these impacts and have highlighted the need to address LGBTQ+ health as a core component of population health and health equity.
