|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. Nonetheless, critical LGBT health
issues remain under-resourced in terms of research and
care, such as chronic disease, including cardiovascular
disease, and diabetes (related to sedentarism, obesity,
nicotine and other addictions. 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.
