Opportunity Conference
Professional Day


The keynote speaker for this year’s Opportunity Conference is Sean Cahill, Director of Health Policy Research, Fenway Institute, Boston

Though the current federal administration is publicly committed to ending the HIV epidemic, the proportion of National Institutes of Health funding related to HIV drops year to year, while funding for other LGBT health research increases.

Behavioral health issues are of vital importance, and research shows higher rates of disability in our communities, and our lower rate of parenting has huge implications for elder caregiving, how we will experience elder congregate living, and aging in general.

In addition to this year’s keynote speaker, we are building up an incredible lineup of informative breakout sessions. Check out what we have planned.
