Association of Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity with Health Care Access and Health Outcomes
Presented in “Building the Evidence on Under-Recognized Populations” session on Monday, June 26, 2023 at 1:00 PM.
Discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) represents an important barrier to health care access. Few studies have examined SOGI-based discrimination experienced in a health care setting and its association with health care access and health outcomes, including confidence in getting care and physical and mental health. Our study fills this gap by using inclusive SOGI data and correlating direct reports of discrimination with a range of health-related outcomes.

Supporting Families: Associations between Neighborhood Support and Child Health Outcomes
Presented in “Child and Family Health Poster Session” on Monday, June 26th from 2:45 PM-4:00 PM.
Living in a supportive neighborhood is one measure of social capital, which is an important social determinant of health. However, few nationally representative studies have examined the relationship between neighborhood support and the health status of children, including adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). We fill this gap using nationally representative data that includes important information on neighborhood and family characteristics.

Factors Associated with COVID-19 Symptoms Longer Than Three Months (long COVID): Evidence from the Household Pulse Survey
Presented in “Best Student Poster Symposium” from 11:00 AM-12:30 PM and “Poster Session A” from 3:30 PM-4:45 PM, on Sunday, June 25th.
Prior research on long COVID focuses on biological determinants; however, recent commentary suggests incorporating social and experiential factors into models of the disease may provide more explanatory power. We use the Household Pulse Survey–a survey administered collaboratively through multiple federal agencies–to help answer this question.
