LGBTQ Resources

Happy Pride Month! In celebration and support of the LGBTQ+ community, PRIM&R has expanded a series of free, related resources to promote research that respects and incorporates the experiences and realities of LGBTQ+ individuals. These resources may be useful for improving practices at your institution, fostering discussion among staff and stakeholders, and identifying areas for change.
