Our mission is to conduct translational research that improves the health of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community and to increase understanding of the development of sexual orientation and gender identity.

If you are an LGBTQ individual, you might be eligible to participate in a study by the IMPACT Program. Participating is a great way to give back to the LGBTQ community, and it may help you learn new information about how to improve your health.
