ISGMH director, Dr. Brian Mustanski, was recently appointed to the National Advisory Council on Minority Health and Health Disparities. The Advisory Council advises the U. S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, the NIH director, and the director of the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) on matters related to the NIMHD’s mission to ensure all populations have equal opportunity to lead healthy lives. As a member of the Advisory Council, Dr. Mustanski will bring his expertise in sexual and gender minority (SGM) health research to inform NIMHD efforts in advancing the science of improving minority health and reducing health disparities. Dr. Mustanski is one of only several Northwestern University faculty members appointed to serve on the councils for NIH Institutes.
Congratulations, Dr. Mustanski!
