People are diverse; healthcare should reflect that diversity. Founded in 1971 on the belief that “healthcare is a right, not a privilege”, Fenway Health is a federally-qualified community health center that specializes in providing the best quality care for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) individuals and people living with HIV/AIDS. The Fenway Institute (TFI) is the research, education, policy, and advocacy division of Fenway Health, and is a world leader in innovative HIV and LGBT population health research. Members of various TFI research teams will be presenting an overview of the active research being conducted at TFI, including HIV vaccine trials, HIV prevention studies focused on Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), and research with transgender and gender diverse populations.
