Working together to improve the health of LGBTQ Californians and their families
The California LGBT Health and Human Services Network is a statewide coalition of non-profit providers, community centers, and researchers working collectively to advocate for state level policies and resources that will advance LGBT health. We strive to provide coordinated leadership about LGBT health policy in a proactive, responsive manner that promotes health and wellness as part of the movement for LGBT equality.
Our next Network Call is March 1st
