Our Mission

The mission of the Lesbian Health Research Center is to enhance clinical practice and inform policy about the health care needs of and delivery of services to lesbians, bisexual women, and transgender individuals through a program of research, postgraduate education and training, and public service.

Drawing upon the research skills and experiences of a multidisciplinary group of UCSF faculty members and other nationally recognized scholars from across the United States, LHRC’s work reflects a broad vision of health, illness, and wellness, and is committed to forging strong collaborations with community groups. A principal goal of the Center is to serve as an ongoing forum, bringing together health care researchers and concerned members of the LBTQ communities.
