A groundbreaking longitudinal study focusing on LGBT health -- all powered by an iPhone app -- launched last month. UCSF's PRIDE Study, an acronym for "Population Research in Identity and Disparities for Equality," hopes to follow its participants across several decades and track the impact of heart disease, depression and other health issues. We discuss these new strategies to address health issues within the LGBT community with the study's co-directors.

Guests:

Mitchell Lunn, clinical research fellow in the UCSF Dept. of Medicine; co-director of the PRIDE Study; founding member of the LGBT Medical Education Research Group at Stanford University School of Medicine

Juno Obedin-Maliver, clinical and research fellow in Advanced Women's Health at UCSF; the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center; co-director of the PRIDE study
