The Bay Area Reporter interviews Associate Professor Phil Hammack about his research on the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people. Hammack is a collaborator with the Generations Project, a multi-site research endeavor that includes the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Columbia University, the University of Arizona, and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).
As Professor Hammack told reporter Matthew S. Bajko:
"This study is needed, from my perspective, because the knowledge we have about LGBT people is rapidly becoming dated," Hammack goes on to say "Social change is happening so quickly for LGBT people. Not only do we need to update our knowledge, we also need to change our research designs so they take into account social change."
