Developing Innovative, Evidence-Based Interventions

The IMPACT LGBT Health and Development Program studies resiliency, sexual health, mental health, and substance use, with a primary focus on LGBT adolescents and young adults. Developing innovative research studies and interventions, in particular by harnessing the power of technology and the Internet, is at the core of the program.

The IMPACT Program has a significant focus on HIV prevention among young gay/bisexual men and seeks to see our interventions implemented to help bend the curve on new infections in this population.  As such the IMPACT Program works closely with the Third Coast Center for AIDS Research and the Center for Prevention Implementation Methodology. Dr. Mustanski, director of the IMPACT Program, also co-directs both of these centers.
