Session: Help Create Training in LGBT Research
4140.0: Tuesday, December 13, 2005: 12:30 PM-2:00 PM
Help Create Training in LGBT Research
Although there is clear evidence to document substantial health disparities between Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) communities and the general population and a research focus on these populations has grown at a fast pace over the past decade, no School of Public Health in the United States offers a concentration in LGBT health issues at the MPH level. This proposes to convene a roundtable to present an outline for training in LGBT health research at the MPH level. The goal of the presentation is to present an outline for the planned curriculum of study and to elicit comments and suggestions on for a training program.
Learning Objectives: The learning objective for this session will be to recognize the need for LGBT health issues at the MPH level, discuss ongoing controversies in the field of LGBT research, list the regional service and research organizations that contribute to LGBT research and create a network of participants interested in the development of training in LGBT research issues at the MPH level.
