Getting to know the LHRC
LHRC is located within the Institute for Health & Aging (IHA), School of Nursing, University of California, San Francisco. LHRC directly advances the Institute’s goals of serving women across the lifespan, and of providing research data for making public policy decisions, improving public education, and facilitating community interventions. LHRC is also affiliated with the UCSF National Center of Excellence (CoE) in Women’s Health and is a collaborative partner of the UCSF Center for Gender Equity (CGE).

Why LHRC? The health care status and needs of lesbians, bisexual women, and transgender individuals remain largely unstudied by researchers of women’s health and aging. As a consequence, little research-based information exists to direct the practices of health care providers that serve these populations, and the knowledge and skills necessary to adequately serve them are lacking.
