First year CSHP doctoral student Deana Williams and second year CSHP doctoral student Christopher Owens have been awarded two of a small number of competitive scholarships to attend the National LGBTQ Health Conference at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 31-June 1, 2019. The National LGBTQ Health Conference is an interdisciplinary translational research conference bringing together scientists, public health professionals, and healthcare providers to discuss issues affecting the health and well-being of the LGBTQ community while fostering professional development and networking opportunities. The conference will provide Deana and Chris with opportunities to connect with researchers and fellow students across universities and other institutions as they work on their own exploratory pilot research projects. Deana is launching a study focusing on the intersections of biracial/multiracial and bisexual identities and their potential impacts on health. Chris has just completed data collection for a study examining the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) use among non-urban men who have sex with men (MSM) in the Midwestern U.S. They will also have an opportunity to participate in the second Sexual & Gender Minority (SGM) Research Workshop sponsored by National Institutes of Health (NIH), in conjunction with Emory University. We are extremely proud of Deana and Chris and are grateful that they will be representing Indiana University at this very special event.
