Webinar: LGBTQIA+ Equity in Human Subjects Research: Strategies for Justice-Focused IRBs

When:  Sep 23, 2021 from 13:00 to 14:15 (ET)
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) people make up approximately 4.5% of the United States population but face worse health outcomes when compared to their non-sexual and gender-minority peers. Despite this, the LGBTQIA+ population remains underrepresented and under-recognized in biomedical and social and behavioral research.

In this webinar, the presenters will discuss LGBTQIA+ health disparities, explore inclusive research data collection methods, and introduce meaningful strategies for IRBs when reviewing studies including LGBTQIA-specific research. Time will be provided for a brief Q&A with the speakers at the end of the session.
