SGM Health Research Listening Session

On October 22, 2019, the SGMRO hosted the agency's first-ever SGM Health Research Listening Session. This listening session was comprised of representatives from several SGM-focused health and health advocacy organizations. The primary objectives of the listening session were to: (1) gather comments, concerns, and suggestions about SGM-related health research and related activities at the NIH from community stakeholders; and (2) use this insight and feedback to help inform the development of the NIH FY 2021-2025 SGM health research strategic plan.
