Youth-Nex Oct. Works-in-Progress Meeting


Oct 21, 2021 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

Youth-Nex holds a series of monthly presentations for faculty and graduate students to informally discuss challenges, interesting new issues, or findings. If you would like to attend and are not UVA faculty or a graduate student, please contact [email protected]


Topic: Youth Engagement in Health Research: Supporting Gender Expansive Medical Services

Description: The objective of this project is to develop the capacity, sustainability, and productivity of a gender minority Youth Advisory Board (YAB). Our central goal, based on our previous pilot is to improve our YAB’s capacity, sustainability, and productivity. The rationale for this work is to 1) address gaps in research on gender minority health disparities by engaging youth as partners in the research process, and 2) develop an approach to evaluation and improvement that would translate into guidelines for other researchers seeking to include gender minority youth in similar projects within a health system/health research.

Presenter: Julia Taylor, MD from UVAHealth
