In 2016, the NIH designated sexual and gender minorities an official health disparity population. This is a welcome change that increases research attention and possible funding opportunities to work with LGBTQI communities. However more research opportunities does not necessarily translate to better research. This panel will discuss the distinctive challenges of research concerning gender and sexual minorities, including the risks of research fatigue, prioritization of research, stigma, trust and community empowerment.
Featured panelists are Florence Ashley, SJD Candidate at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law; Julia Applegate, Director, Equitas Health; and Julianna Nemeth
Assistant Professor, Ohio State University College of Public Health.
The Center for Ethics and Human Values’ CARE program is co-sponsored by the Office of Research with support from the OSUMC Center for Bioethics and the College of Public Health.
