CAPS/PRC Town Hall presents:
Phillip W. Schnarrs, PhD, Associate Professor of Community-Based Participatory Research, The University of Texas at Austin, Dell Medical School, Division of Community-Engagement and Health Equity
Research on health disparities has consistently shown that sexual and gender minorities (SGM) are disproportionately affected by a number of poor health outcomes, including HIV, mental health, and now COVID-19. The principles of community-based participatory research (CBPR) provide a tool for assessing, understanding, and responding to health disparities through collaboration with community partners, but also the private sector. Using data from three different CBPR projects, Strengthening Colors of Pride (mental health and trauma), COVID-19 & You (COVID-19), and Sexual Subcultures and PrEP (HIV), Dr. Schnarrs will discuss how CBPR principles were incorporated into each of the study designs, report findings from the projects, and talk about how these findings are being used to support future work.
Dr. Phillip W. Schnarrs, Associate Professor of Community-Based Participatory Research at the University of Texas at Austin, Dell Medical School, Division of Community Engagement and Health Equity is a health equity scholar with broad interest in LGBTQ+ health and participatory research. Dr. Schnarrs’ work is focused in two primary areas: HIV testing and prevention, as well as trauma, resilience, and mental health. His goal is to design, adapt, and evaluate interventions that target syndemic factors that affect the health and wellbeing of SGM individuals through cooperation and collaboration with community partners.
