    Celebrating Visibility

    The Stanford Medicine Alumni Association and the Stanford School of Medicine is proud to sponsor the first LGBTQ+ Forum celebrating visibility and all alumni are invited to come to campus for this inaugural event taking place on Wednesday, October 10 at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning & Knowledge.

The Forum will feature personal and professional stories from LGBTQ+ members of the Stanford Medicine community, as well as networking opportunities and opportunities for allies to show support. This inaugural event will promote the continued growth of a visible Stanford Medicine LGBTQ+ community.
