Atlanta Pride Committee does our best to support a variety of community events and projects that represent the full spectrum of our diverse community. While we can't actively recruit for each of these programs, we are happy to help them reach our community by posting information about the various projects on our Community Involvement page. We list the various research information here for the community to participate in those studies for which they qualify. Additionally, we encourage our community to visit this page regularly as it is updated as we are made aware of new studies and programs. We hope that this will help not only our research partners, but the LGBTQ+ Community as a whole.

Purpose:The All of Us Research Program has a simple mission. We want to help speed up health research. LGBTQ+ people, like many other groups, have often been left out of research. As a result, we know less about their health and ways to provide them with the best care. The All of Us Research Program wants to change this. By joining All of Us, LGBTQ+ people can help ensure their community is included in health studies. These studies could help researchers understand health conditions that are more common among LGBTQ+ people. What they learn could lead to more tailored approaches for preventing and treating those conditions.Participate in this survey
