🌈 Exciting Announcement from the UC Santa Barbara Evaluation Team! 🌈

We are thrilled to share that our team has taken a significant step towards advancing LBTQ+ people of color (POC) health research! At the 7th biennial APA Division 45 Research Conference held in the beautiful city of San Diego, CA, our dedicated team had the privilege of disseminating research findings that focus on improving LBTQ+ POC health and well-being.


Our researchers have been hard at work, delving into critical aspects of LBTQ+ POC health, and the results are both enlightening and empowering. The opportunity to present these findings at the conference amongst the scientific community is a milestone in our journey towards a more inclusive and healthier future for the LBTQ+ POC community.


The conference, which centers race and ethnicity, provided an ideal platform for our team to showcase the significance of our community and research work on this initiative. We are grateful for the opportunity to engage with fellow researchers, experts, and advocates in the field, and to contribute to the ongoing discourse surrounding LBTQ+ POC health and its multifaceted dimensions.


The UC Santa Barbara Evaluation team would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of the participants who have supported us along this research journey. It is with great enthusiasm that we share these findings and insights, hoping that they will spark further discussions, inform policies, and inspire positive change for LBTQ+ POC.


Stay tuned for more updates on our research and its impact. Together, let's continue striving for a world where our LBTQ+ POC community not only thrives but also receives care, respect, and understanding for all.
