Ct. Transgender Lives Conference. Call for Workshop Proposals

Posted: October 25, 2016 in Events, For your information
Call for the Eleventh Annual Transgender Lives Conference Workshop Proposals
 
The deadline for workshop proposals is December 31

Our Eleventh Annual Transgender Lives: The Intersection of Health and Law Conference will be held on Saturday April 29, 2017 at the UConn Health Center in Farmington, CT. In preparation for this conference we are announcing our CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS.

Our conference is about relationships – relationships with ourselves and relationships with those who interact with us. It is about re-defining these relationships through knowledge and understanding and by helping to erase those misconceptions that have disempowered so many for so long. Our conference is also about community – and not just trans and gender non-conforming communities but also our allies who support us, the professionals who work with us, our families who care for us, and most-especially, you!

The goal of the Transgender Lives: The Intersection of Health and Law Conference conference is for participants to gain a better understanding of the issues facing transgender and gender non-conforming individuals and communities.

This year we are looking for workshops on the following topics:

* Health and health care
* Intersection of transgender lives and substance use
* Suicide prevention
* Legal protections and documentation
* Employment and education
* Life and family issues
* Partner(s) and family
* Health care coverage & government guidelines
* Aging transgender population
* Policy/civil rights
* New guidelines for travel
* Improvement in your gender presentation(s)
* Middle of the road concerns

* Allies

You can submit your workshop electronically by clicking the Submit Your Proposal link below. This online form explains all relevant details for submission and will allow you to fill out your proposal online. Workshop space is limited and all proposals will be reviewed for applicability and relevance to the conference theme and audience. We encourage you to submit your workshop proposal as soon as possible.

We also encourage you to forward this Call for Workshop Proposals to any colleagues, friends, family, or distribution lists you feel would be interested in conducting a workshop at the Eleventh Annual Transgender Lives: The Intersection of Health and Law Conference in 2017.

As this conference has dramatically grown over the years, we recognize that many of you have very important topics and experience which fold into our theme of The Intersection of Health and Law. Again, workshop space is limited and all proposals will be reviewed for applicability and relevance to the conference theme and audience.


If you feel you have a workshop that would benefit the conference then we encourage you to submit your proposal at your earliest convenience.
