Medical Students for Gender and Sexual Diversity (GSD) is a student led University of Calgary Student Union group that is dedicated to advancing LGBTQ Health both within the Cumming School of Medicine and in our roles as future physicians. In 2015, Kira Abelsohn, Marguerite Heyns, Stephanie Hudson, and Shoghi Nikoo were elated to bring Calgary its first ever LGBTQ Health Forum. This year Jordan Dangerfield, Lucy Jefferson, Elaina Kaufman, Roberta Lee, and Chris Smith are excited to present the third annual LGBTQ Health Forum. 

We are grateful for the support and guidance of our physician colleagues, Drs. Doug Myhre and Joe Raiche and for the collaboration of our student colleagues
in the U of C Medical School Class of 2020. The 2017 GSD Forum would not be possible without our generous sponsors: The Alberta Medical Association, University of Calgary's Students Union, and University of Calgary's Office of Undergraduate Medical Education.
