Keynote: Adapting to Scholarly and Societal Changes While Researching LGBT Health Disparities

Presentation Type

Presentation

Abstract

In a career as a clinical psychologist studying health disparities that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals face, I have had to adapt my research to a number of changes in both discipline-specific and societal perceptions of LGBT individuals. I will discuss how I have geared my research program to adapt to these changes, highlighting how the research process does not occur in a vacuum, regardless of topic area or discipline. Changing eras also represent burgeoning opportunities, as they have with my work, to study often under-researched populations and to help meet the needs of our diverse world.
