My primary clinical and research activities relate to the care of marginalized youth populations including HIV+ and LGBT young people. Our research is largely HIV prevention in nature, mostly targeting either young men who have sex with men or transgender individuals. A new area of research and clinical interest involves working with young gender variant children and families
