Scoping review of queer cardiovascular health. In this scoping review, we will identify, summarize, and synthesize the findings associated with cardiovascular health in queer populations. Areas of exploration, inclusive of current findings and future directions, will be grouped according to the socio-ecological framework, which posits that outcomes are associated with multiple levels of influence and also affected by the intersectionality of these levels. Jake Diana is currently leading the drafting of the manuscript, with a goal of completion in Fall 2023.

The association of community-level safety metrics and individual physical activity levels among queer individuals.

Zachary Yukio Kerr is currently planning data ascertainment and analysis, with a goal of completing analyses in Fall 2023.

Factors that facilitate and impede using campus rec facilities among queer students.
