In the interests of building capacity for healthcare researchers to carry out patient-oriented research and to contribute to greater awareness of diversity within research, MSSU is pleased to present "LGBTQ+ 101: Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Health", a presentation by the Youth Project on sex and gender and related healthcare issues.

This presentation will take place on Tuesday, January 30, 2018, in Room 114 at the Centre for Clinical Research (5790 University Avenue). The 2-hour presentation will be followed by a pizza lunch for participants.
