HIV focus of LSU's 2nd LGBTQ+ health symposium

April 24, 2018 - 12:56 pm

(AP) _ LSU Health New Orleans is holding a free symposium about LGBTQ health, with a focus on the human immunodeficiency virus and AIDS.
The second annual LGBTQ+ Health Care Symposium runs Wednesday and Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the school's medical education building. 
The first evening will discuss issues for physical and mental health care of people in the community with the virus or AIDS. 
The second evening is a training event called ``HIV Criminalization in Louisiana.'' Because it's a federally funded training program that needs to 
account for its spending, those planning to attend must register online by creating an ID number.
Last year's inaugural symposium was more general, including transgender medicine, anti-discrimination laws in Louisiana and what LGBT patients should expect of their providers.
