L.A. Trans* Health Summit: Creating Comprehensive Services for the Trans* Community

On June 30, 2015, the Los Angeles County Commission on HIV Transgender Caucus hosted a one-day event entitled, “L.A. Trans* Health Summit: Creating Comprehensive Services for the Trans* Community.” The purpose of the event was to bring together consumers, community members, and service providers to explore the health and HIV needs of the transgender community and to discuss strategies for providing comprehensive and culturally competent services for this population. The event was a huge success and was attended by over 220 participants. CHIPTS was a proud sponsor and collaborator of the event. Congratulations to the Commission on HIV Transgender Caucus for organizing a fantastic conference!
