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.
