Four Corners: TGNC Health Research Advisory Network

Make a Difference in the Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Community!

The U.S. medical community knows too little about providing respectful and high quality healthcare to the trans and gender nonconforming (TGNC) community. You can help us fix that! To generate more patient-centered TGNC health research, Howard Brown Health has formed Four Corners in partnership with Whitman-Walker Health, The Los Angeles LGBT Center, and Legacy Community Health. Four Corners is the nation’s first-ever TGNC Health Research Advisory Network created to develop health research with non-binary and transgender and gender nonconforming people. Four Corners will facilitate meaningful and equitable participation of all members in order to expand community-led health research. No prior research experience is necessary to participate.

As a Four Corners member, you are expected to:
– Make a 2-year commitment
– Complete a 3 to 4 hour training in research ethics, which includes a training certificate and $100 stipend
– Attend 5 Four Corners meetings
