U-M Professor And Graduate Student Seek Participants For Two LGBTQ Studies

ANN ARBOR - U-M School of Social Work Assistant Professor Dr. Michael Woodford and graduate student Shannon Bacon are each conducting studies on LGBTQ individuals.

Bacon is conducting a study on the quality of life among transgender adults 45 and older. She seeks to better understand how social workers and communities can support transgender individuals as they age.

Participants in Bacon's study will have a one-hour interview and an optional follow-up interview. Participants will be compensated $20 for their interviews.

For more information, contact Shannon Bacon at Sibacon@Umich.edu.

Woodford, Bacon's faculty advisor, is leading a study concerning the nature of LGBTQ discrimination and its consequences on LGBTQ students.

Woodford's scholarship addresses social exclusion of marginalized groups and promoting inclusion through policy and programs. Recently he has researched the effects of explicit and subtle heterosexism and interventions seeking to promote inclusion of LGBTQ people.

Participants in Woodford's study will take a 25-minute survey and be entered to win one of twelve $25 cash gift cards. The study can be found at http://umichssw.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_01AOyGedKBBIU3r and all participants will remain anonymous.
