UCSF researchers Mitchell R. Lunn, MD and Juno Obedin-Maliver, MD, MPH are conducting the first-ever longitudinal health research study of LGBTQ adults in the United States. The main question the team wants to answer over many years is: How does being a sexual or gender minority influence physical, mental, or social health?
While it may seem like research is not important right now, nothing could be further from the truth. With better data about our community, we will not only be able to make policy changes, we will have a better understanding for ourselves of the challenges our community faces. Please consider participating, and don’t hesitate to reach out to the PRIDE Study team with questions (contact information listed below).
Who can enroll?
Anyone who lives in the US or Territories, identifies as LGBTQ, and is 18 years or older.
