The IMPACT Program was founded in 2008 and recently moved to Northwestern University. Our mission is to conduct translational research that improves the health of sexual minority people and to increase understanding of the development of sexual orientation and gender identity. We seek to develop the capacity of the LGBT community to conduct health research and translate research findings into practical interventions. IMPACT’s unique collaboration with community-based organizations facilitates the translation of our research findings into future intervention, practice, and policy.
