WeHo co-presents two-day Cedars-Sinai LGBTQ+ Cancer Symposium

The City of West Hollywood co-presents an upcoming two-day Cedars-Sinai LGBTQ+ Cancer Symposium. This symposium is the first of its kind to center the science and voices of LGBTQ+ people on cancer care, community engagement, and policies that influence health disparities. Cedars-Sinai Cancer recognizes that by examining the intersection of sexual orientation, gender, and cancer, it can better prevent, detect, and cure cancer.

The LGBTQ+ Cancer Symposium will take place on Thursday, June 2, 2022, and Friday, June 3, 2022, at Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, located at 8555 Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles. Oncologists, oncologic surgeons, epidemiologists, health equity researchers, health outcomes researchers, policy makers, community organizers, and thought leaders in this space are encouraged to register and attend.

The Symposium will feature, as Keynote Speaker, Karen L. Parker, Ph.D., MSW, Director of the Sexual and Gender Minority Research Office at the National Institutes of Health. Symposium Co-Chairs are B.J. Rimel, M.D., Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Cedars-Sinai, and Zul Surani Associate Director of Community Outreach and Engagement at Cedars-Sinai Cancer.
