Culture & Conversation is a monthly discussion series hosted by the Office of Diversity Affairs, where students, faculty and staff engage in conversations regarding current events and cultural relevant issues.Please join us for a highly engaging discussion on LGBTQ+ history, language, and the relevance to your position as medical professionals and students. The basic language and community is in constant transition as generational shifts inform gender identity and sexuality categories. We will discuss the importance of inclusive language and policy as well as real-life stories of doctor/patient interactions with LGTBQ+ individuals.

This event is sponsored by the IUSM Alumni Relations. If you have questions about this event please contact the office at 317-274-8828 or by email at
