Call for Nominations - Understanding the Status and Well-Being of LGBTQ+ Populations

Submission due by Friday March 22, 2019
 
The Committee on Population of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is pleased to announce a new study funded by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The Gilead Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health that will review and assess the available data and research on LGBT and other sexual and gender minority populations (i.e., intersex, asexual, etc.—hereafter referred to as LGBTQ+) and identify the most pressing needs for additional data and research-generated knowledge regarding their achievement, labor force and civic participation, and health.
 
This effort will build upon the 2011 Institute of Medicine report on The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People: Building a Foundation for Better Understanding, which examined the health status of LGBT people across the life course.
 
The study will include a public workshop and will result in a report that will present an authoritative, scientific consensus viewpoint on various dimensions of the status and well-being of LGBTQ+ populations.
 
For this study, the National Academies will appoint a multidisciplinary committee of 12-14 members, with expertise in areas such as demography, epidemiology, public health, culture and social structure, aging, family, economics, political science, public policy, and statistics/methodology.
 
Committee selection is critical to the success of National Academies’ projects and the National Academies are committed to the full participation of persons with disabilities, individuals from underrepresented demographic groups, and persons from all sexual orientation and gender identity groups in all phases of its work. Committee members must be well-respected in their specified fields of study and work and have a broad understanding of the domains relevant to the charge. 


Your assistance in identifying potential committee members is greatly appreciated.
