Help shape the first large-scale, long-term health study of LGBTQ people!
The PRIDE Study app allows members of the LGBTQ community to inform and influence what aspects of our health will be studied in the upcoming PRIDE Study.
The PRIDE Study is a long-term collaboration that will help health professionals make informed decisions about our health. Learn more below.
KEY FEATURES OF THE PRIDE STUDY APP:
• Nominate, rank and discuss research topics in the community discussion forum
• Share sensor data with researchers through Research Kit
• Complete informational surveys
• Share location and activity information with researchers
Note: This all will only record sensor data from Apple’s Health app with your permission.
WHO'S ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PRIDE STUDY?
You are eligible to join the PRIDE Study if you are:
• 18 years of age or older
• A resident of the United States
• Comfortable reading and writing on your iPhone in English
• LGBTQ or another sexual or gender minority
This app is designed for research and education purposes only. This app is not meant to provide medical advice, attention, or treatment. If you are having a medical emergency, call or contact your healthcare provider.
WHAT IS THE PRIDE STUDY?
The PRIDE Study is the first large-scale, long-term health study of people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ), or another sexual or gender minority.
By participating in The PRIDE Study over time, your unique story teaches us about the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ people like you.
WHO IS CONDUCTING THE PRIDE STUDY?
The PRIDE Study is being conducted by doctors and research scientists at The University of California, San Francisco.
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF THE PRIDE STUDY?
The mission of The PRIDE Study is to improve the health of LGBTQ people. To meet this goal, we need to understand how being LGBTQ affects your health. The PRIDE Study deeply explores how the experience of being LGBTQ is related to all aspects of health and life. We study the unique health care disparities, strengths, and resiliencies of our communities. We share our findings through a variety of methods to impact LGBTQ communities and health professionals.
HOW IS MY INFORMATION KEPT SAFE?
As doctors and research scientists, we understand that information about your life and health is personal. Like our patients’ health information, it is our priority to keep the information you share private and secure. All communications between you and our app are secure electronic transmission, and our data are physically secure. All our systems meet the requirements defined by federal law (United States Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act or HIPAA).
HOW IS MY INFORMATION SHARED?
Your participation in The PRIDE Study is wasted if we don’t share the results with the people and organizations that can make real change for LGBTQ health. Results from The PRIDE Study will be shared directly with you, healthcare professionals, policy makers, and community organization. We will never share individual information; only aggregated (grouped) data will be shared.
What's New in Version 1.61
We hope you are enjoying the PRIDE Study app. We have introduced new surveys and made some improvements to enhance your experience!
What’s new in this release:
▪ New surveys focused on physical health, mental health, and social health
▪ Revamped community features: now faster and more robust, ability to flag posts or comments, and more filtering capabilities (New, Top all-time, Following, and Archived)
▪ Additional survey to help shape the future of The PRIDE Study
▪ New app icon
The app design itself is very well done. Every step seems fully thought out. Although , I expected more ongoing interaction and communication from the study organizers. It can feel like long periods without any updates, but I'm glad to be part of such great research!
There's been nothing new for the past 8 months in terms of surveys from the UCSF Pride Study. Was the project shelved, abandoned or did not receive any funding to continue? I would like to know.
