I’m excited to announce the first participant in the Transgender Heaven Scholar Program – The Transwomen’s Social Support for Medication Adherence.
The purpose of the scholar program is to help foster research of the transgender and crossdressing community by academics, industry, government and community organizations. By encouraging this research, we hope to play a small part in developing programs that improve the quality of life for those in our community.
The research is done by a third party not affiliated with Crossdresser Heaven. While we make the best effort to ensure the research is done in good faith, it is your responsibility to evaluate the organization and ensure that you are comfortable in providing answers to their questions and sharing personal information with them.
Please consider participating in the study for Transwomen’s Social Support for Medication Adherence.
Brief Overview and Purpose
The goal of the TRANSSFORM (transwomen’s social support for medication adherence) study is to better understand how the people surrounding HIV-positive transwomen in the US influence their health. Hopefully, the information gained in this study can be used to improve and expand support programs for the US HIV-positive MTF trans community.
To eligible, you must live in the US, be diagnosed with HIV, have a prescription for ART (or HIV medication), be assigned male sex at birth, and identify as a woman, transwomen, or MTF trans. Participation involves a 30–40 minute survey on health and relationships. Eligible participants will receive a $20 Visa gift card either by means of a virtual account or physical address (must be in the US.)
