CSDE Awards a Population Planning Research Grant (PRPG) to Fredriksen-Goldsen and the Global Pride Pilot Study
Posted: 9/8/2023 (CSDE Awards)
The CSDE Development Core is happy to announce a Population Research Planning Grant awarded to CSDE Affiliate Karen Fredriksen-Goldsen, Professor in the School of Social Work and a long-time expert on healthy aging among LGBTQ+ adults.
In 2020, Dr. Fredriksen-Goldsen worked to establish an international collaboration of researchers in 18 countries across six world regions—from Canada to Japan to Argentina to Nigeria to Pakistan. Collectively, the group piloted online and mail-in surveys about health and life experiences among adult members of sexual and gender minorities in each country. Now, CSDE will be providing financial support to allow Dr. Fredriksen-Goldsen and her team to evaluate the pilot study in a host of ways, including cross-country comparisons of data completeness, feasibility and acceptability. The results will help to inform scale-up to a major longer-term international effort at assessing progress and challenges in achieving LGBTQ+ health and well-being across the lifespan. Congratulations to Dr. Fredriksen-Goldsen!
