Currently Enrolling Studies
Participating in research studies at Howard Brown Health helps advance medical knowledge in hopes to improve care for LGBTQ patients, individuals living with HIV, and the broader population.
You do not need to be a Howard Brown patient to participate in our research studies, but we will give you the option to link to care at Howard Brown.
Every research study is different. Before enrolling in a study at Howard Brown Health, a member of the research team will walk you through the process and the details of a study to make sure you’re eligible, aware of any risks and/or benefits to participating, and that it’s the right fit.
Some studies may include compensation for your time and effort. We will give you all the information and time you need to decide whether to participate.
