My research on LGBT population health has been conducted at the state level as well as the national level. For example, I have examined LGBT health disparities utilizing population-based data including Washington State Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System and recently National Health Interview Survey as well as Health and Retirement Study and American Community Survey. I am also collaborating with local agencies, across all the US Census divisions serving LGBT midlife and older adults to reach hard-to-reach LGBT populations and better understand their strengths and needs for their health and well-being. I am currently developing global partners.
