Graduate Minor in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Health

About the Graduate Minor

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) populations hold a unique set of health concerns often unrecognized in standard health and public health practice. The graduate minor in LGBT Health focuses on these concerns recognizing the greater burden of disease these populations sometimes experience as well as the protective characteristics these communities often possess. The minor will review the current state of knowledge about LGBT health and critique research methods used to study sexual and gender minorities.
