The biennial RHO Conference is the only conference in Canada focused on the health and wellness of LGBT communities. RHO’s previous conferences in Toronto (2010) and Ottawa (2012) were both widely acclaimed and well attended. The 2014 Conference in Toronto builds on those successes, and offers further opportunities for strategic partnership, learning, networking and planning for the future.
The RHO 2014 Conference theme “Creating Change Together” recognizes the ground-breaking work that is taking place and also highlights the need for further system-wide change. The conference draws leaders from academic, practice and community sectors to share new scientific knowledge, evolving models of clinical service, relevant policy tools and grass-roots innovations. Our goals are to showcase excellence and innovation and to strengthen participants’ ability to work together in building a healthier Ontario for LGBT individuals, families and communities.
Presenters and delegates are invited to spend three days in Toronto sharing their vision and expertise as we discuss the following key issues:

How healthy are our diverse LGBT communities?

What policies or programs are making a difference?

Which health disparities and barriers remain and how do we address them?

How can we integrate our efforts for greater impact?

Past RHO conferences have included a broad range of topics including mental health, creating LGBT sensitive services, cancer, gender variant children, the health of asylum seekers, queer families, trans health care, sexuality and pleasure, LGBT research methods and more.
This conference will include workshops in French and all plenary sessions will feature simultaneous translation.

On February 4th there will be four full-day learning institutes available for introductory learning, or for in-depth learning on specific topics.

Keep an eye on RHO’s website for more information.
