The National LGBTQ Health Conference was founded in 2012 by the Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing (ISGMH) at Northwestern University and Center on Halsted, the largest LGBTQ community center in the Midwest. In 2019, Emory University joined the conference as a partner. The largest scientific gathering of its kind in the United States, the conference also fosters professional development and provides networking opportunities.
