I'm planning to be there to cover the summit events and there is exciting news I get to report concerning the Transgender Education Network of Texas (TENT) conducting a pre-TTNS event on July 19.
Here's the press release from the TTNS organizers.
HOUSTON, TEXAS—The Fourth Annual Texas Transgender Nondiscrimination Summit (TTNS) is scheduled for July 20-21, 2012 at the University of Houston-Clear Lake. As in years past, the Summit will concentrate on the needs and policy changes that support a transgender community.
New this year is an exciting educational opportunity at the Texas Transgender Health Summit by Transgender Education Network of Texas (TENT) scheduled for Thursday, July 19 as a pre-summit event
“We are very excited by this new opportunity to expand our educational opportunities with the Health Summit the day before the Trans Nondiscrimination Summit,” said TTNS President Josephine Tittsworth.“We know policy about the trans community needs to include health policy and hope that the Health Summit will accomplish our goals of creating inclusive policies at Universities.”
