About the Workshop

The goal of this workshop is to examine social, environmental, structural, and policy drivers of health disparities for sexual and gender minorities (SGM). Research on health for SGM is underrepresented in the literature, yet the health disparities suffered by these groups is large. Improving the health of sexual and gender minorities is a pressing national health concern. The aim of our Broom‐sponsored workshop is to amass experts to discuss new and forthcoming research in the field, and identify needs for future research. A second aim is to support graduate students who would like to pursue research in this field, by offering support on data availability, methods, and funding opportunities.
