OUT For Health is a medical conference founded and organized by students across all Texas health science centers in order to address the needs of the 2SLGBTQI+ population. Each year a different Texas health science center hosts the conference, with this year’s conference being put on by students at the University of Texas Medical Branch. This will be the 7th annual Out For Health Conference and this year’s conference promises to continue the trend of growth and expansion to the conference. Join us VIRTUALLY for this year’s conference as we amplify the voices of the marginalized and come together as healthcare professionals to learn how to best serve 2SLGBTQI+ communities. This year’s conference will offer CME, CNE, and CEU credit for LIVE STREAM attendance (must watch live for CE credits).

Because CME activities are conducted in the public interest, it is important to assure the public that education received by physicians and other health care professionals through whom patient care decisions are made is conducted with the highest integrity, scientific objectivity, and independent of influence by commercial interests. A conflict of interest exists when individuals have both a financial relationship with a commercial interest and the opportunity to affect the content of CME about the product or services of that commercial interest. The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) holds providers of CME responsible for collecting information from its instructors, planners and managers of CME content and resolving those conflicts prior to the commencement of the CME activity. The intent of the conflict of interest resolution process is to ensure that provider, faculty and planner financial relationships with commercial interests and resultant loyalties do not supersede the public interest in the design and delivery of continuing medical education activities for the profession. The ACCME holds providers of CME responsible for ensuring that the participants in a CME activity are provided disclosure information for all persons involved in decisions related to (1) identification of CME needs; (2) determination of educational objectives; (3) selection and presentation of content; (4) selection of all persons and organizations that will be in a position to control the content of the CME; (5) selection of educational methods; and (6) evaluation of the activity. The UTMB Office of Continuing Education has reviewed financial disclosure information for all presenters, reviewers and planning committee members; determined relevance of relationships and resolved any conflicts of interests prior to the activity. Relevant disclosure information for all presenters will be provided verbally prior to the presentation.
The following planners, presenters, reviewers, and co-authors have no relevant relationships with commercial interests to disclose:
