On June 1, 2020, the SGMRO held a webinar about Navigating the NIH. This webinar primarily targeted researchers who were interested in conducting research on differences of sex development (DSD) and with intersex populations.
The NIH FY 2016-2020 Strategic Plan to Advance Research on the Health and Well-Being of Sexual and Gender Minorities includes goals and objectives that aim to increase and improve SGM health research supported by NIH. Goal Three of the strategic plan is to Strengthen the Community of Researchers and Scholars Who Conduct Research Relevant to SGM Health and Well-Being. To achieve this goal, in part, the SGMRO hosted a webinar in SGM health research to help build capacity for research in DSD and/or intersex populations
The goals of this webinar were to increase understanding of the NIH structure and processes, enhance capacity to conduct SGM research, and provide researchers with the opportunity to interact with NIH staff. (Click here for the draft agenda).
