Landmark longterm study underway on LGBT health

A large study began this past June to gather data from thousands of LGBT individuals in the U.S. using an Apple app.  The study originates from the University of California-San Francisco, the Population Research in Identity and Disparities for Equality, or PRIDE, Study is a two-part longitudinal study that could impact the way researchers and educators understand, treat and teach about LGBT health.

If you are interested in participating, please do!  I just signed up and started the process!  the study will last 6 to 9 months, and they estimate that the time commitment is about 15 minutes per week!  You participate using the mobile app!  The consent process is clear and easy to understand, and there is no shortage of detailed information about the study and the people who are conducting the research.  One thing I like is that you can follow basic information about the study as you go – for example, how many people are participating.  Today there are over 14,000 participants!
