Andrew Chang & Company has been retained by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to assist with the LBTQ Health Equity Initiative. The LBTQ Initiative is a multi-pronged $17.5 million state grant focused on the health needs of lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer people within California, and $1.8 million has been earmarked for research projects surrounding LBTQ health disparities. In order to help the Department identify areas for study and direct funding for this Initiative please respond to the following survey by Friday, May 6, 2022.


The survey should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete, and we would greatly appreciate it if you shared the survey with any LBTQ researchers in your network. Researchers responding to this survey do not have to be employed by an academic institution and can represent a variety of disciplines and approaches.


For any questions, please contact Lin at or (916) 538-6091 x3.
