How do US laws impact LGBTQ health? Join faculty from the Center for Health Law, Ethics & Human Rights and the Department of Health Law, Policy & Management in a discussion on the upcoming US Supreme Court case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. This case is about a same sex couple in Colorado that attempted to order a wedding cake from Masterpiece Bakery. The owner of the bakery refused to make them a cake, asserting that supporting a same sex couple in this way would be a violation of his sincerely held religious beliefs. This forum will address both the SCOTUS case as well as other laws that have impacted LGBTQ health. All are welcome to attend. Lunch will be provided. RSVP REQUIRED - please use link to RSVP.
