LGBT Health Survey’s from UCSF

By on Thursday, January 21st, 2010

University of California in San Francisco is studying urinary and sexual problems within two populations: 1. men who have sex with men and 2. women who have sex with women. Please consider taking the surveys or forwarding them along to others who may be interested.  These studies will hopefully help gain more insight into topics that have not yet been adequately examined.

More information is listed below (first the MSM survey and then the WSW survey).

MSM

Help us improve treatment for urinary and sexual problems in men who have sex with men!

Researchers in the department of urology at the University of California in San Francisco are conducting a study on the prevalence of urinary and sexual problems in men who have sex with men (MSM).  A study like this has never been conducted in this population and represents an important step forward in correcting healthcare disparities for this long neglected group.

If you are a man who has sex with men, we ask for you help in completing a TOTALLY ANONYMOUS internet based survey.  Getting as many responses as possible will enhance the reliability of our results and better enable us to convince the medical community of the need to pay more attention to the health care needs of MSM.

More information is available at the following URL:  http://urology.ucsf.edu/msmhealth.html

Questions?  Please contact the study investigators: Benjamin Breyer, MD (bbreyer@urology.ucsf.edu ) and Alan Shindel MD (shindela@urology.ucsf.edu)

WSW
Help us improve treatment for urinary and sexual problems in women who have sex with women!

Researchers in the department of urology at the University of California in San Francisco are conducting a study on the prevalence of urinary and sexual problems in women who have sex with women (WSW).  A study like this has never been conducted in this population and represents an important step forward in correcting healthcare disparities for this long neglected group.

If you are a woman who has sex with women, we ask for you help in completing a TOTALLY ANONYMOUS internet based survey.  Getting as many responses as possible will enhance the reliability of our results and better enable us to convince the medical community of the need to pay more attention to the health care needs of WSW.
