ICRE Staff Member and ICRE Alums’ Study Published in Journal of Adolescent Health

Chelsea Proulx, MPH, Evaluation Project Coordinator at the Institute for Clinical Research Education, recently had her thesis research on the associations of LGBTQ-inclusive sex education with mental health outcomes and school-based victimization in U.S. high schools published in the Journal of Adolescent Health. The study found that LGBTQ-inclusive sex education is associated with lower reports of adverse mental health among all youth and experiences of bullying among subgroups of sexual minority youth.

Chelsea’s research collaborators on the study include not one but two former ICRE trainees: Robert Coulter, PhD, MPH (TL1 Postdoc ’19) and Derrick Matthews, PhD, MPH (CEED ’15), both of whom are coauthors on the paper.

Congratulations to Chelsea on this accomplishment!
