Transforming Care 2020: Call for Abstracts

Transforming Care 2020: Call for Abstracts

We are excited to announce we are accepting abstracts for the 2020 Transforming Care Conference between April 6, 2020 and June 1, 2020. Transforming Care has come to be known as the most comprehensive conference on LGBTQ+ HIV health equity in the country. Conference participants tell us that what makes TCC so transformative is the mix of people—researchers, practitioners, activists, community members all broadening each other’s perspectives. This year’s TCC theme will be The Invisibles.


We seek proposals presented by and geared toward medical providers, mental health providers, social workers, activists, researchers, people living with HIV, and/or LGBTQ+ community members. Proposals should be interactive, engaging, and relevant to the learning objectives and theme of the conference. We welcome a variety of proposal types, including oral presentations, workshops, panels, posters, and holistic health activities. Proposals may be submitted by individuals or groups and we value both professional and lived experience. The Transforming Care Conference is committed to uplifting the voices of individuals and communities with marginalized identities. We especially encourage abstract submissions from people living with HIV/AIDS, LGBTQ+ folks, people of color, people with disabilities, incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people, people who are undocumented, youth and elders, women, people experiencing poverty, and others with marginalized identities. We are looking for proposals that will:

    • Go beyond a PowerPoint presentation and get conference attendees actively engaged
    • Boost the energy of conference attendees
    • Break down barriers and promote collaboration
    • Highlight new or innovative work
    • Creative a positive and safe learning experience

We are committed to including people who do not have experience applying to present or presenting at conferences. If you would like assistance with the creation and submission of your abstract, the Abstract Committee is more than happy to offer support and mentorship. Please contact us at to set up a mentoring appointment.

Note: Presentations may be presented in other settings prior to or after the Transforming Care Conference.
