Welcome to the LGBTQ Health Disparities Research Collaborative website!

The purpose of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) Health Disparities Research Collaborative is to provide graduate students and faculty members at UNC-Chapel Hill with a space to engage in critical conversations related to issues of LGBTQ health. In particular, we bring individuals together to share ongoing research, practice, and advocacy efforts here at UNC-Chapel Hill. In line with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) 2016-2020 Sexual and Gender Minority Health Strategic Plan, our efforts aim to 1) strengthen the community of scholars to promote innovative, multidisciplinary research on population-level LGBTQ outcomes, 2) provide solutions to current barriers in conducting LGBTQ health research, and 3) expand the current knowledge base on sexual and gender minority health and well-being.
