Help with a research project on LGBT athletic trainers

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Hello!

I am a Doctorate in Athletic Training student at Indiana State University and am developing a research project regarding the quality of healthcare perceptions of LGBTQ individuals specifically in the Athletic Training setting. I am working with two other classmates to approach this from 3 different perspectives:

  1. To evaluate student-athlete perceptions of athletic trainer’s who identify as LGBTQ.
  2. To evaluate athletic trainer’s perceptions of other athletic trainer’s who identify as LGBTQ.
  3. To evaluate athletic trainer’s perceptions of student athletes who identify as LGBTQ. We are seeking experts in this area to provide feedback on our survey.

We are reaching out to you in an effort to find experts in the field of LGBTQ healthcare and participation in athletics. It is our hope to collaborate with theses experts to ensure the questions of our survey are accurate and inclusive to the target population.

If you or anyone or anyone if your organization would be willing to help connect us with someone to assist in our search for experts in this field it would be greatly appreciated. You can email me at enye1@sycamores.indstate.edu.

Thanks!
