TYFA Research Survey

__________

10feb04-shannonHi, my name is Shannon Garcia and I am the President of Trans Youth Family Allies also known asTYFA. I wanted to tell you about a research study that is research for, by, and about our families who live in the United States. As many of you know, there is a void of research on trans youth. We have an opportunity to tap into information that we really want researchers to know about. We here at TYFA have teamed up with Seth Pardo and Colt Meier who have worked with our very own Dr. Jo Olson to create the anonymous online questionnaire for our parents to complete.Hi, my name is Shannon Garcia and I am the President of Trans Youth Family Allies also known as TYFA. I wanted to tell you about a research study that is research for, by, and about our families who live in the United States.

I know the researchers personally. Seth is a developmental psychologist with Alliant University and Colt is a clinical psychology doctoral graduate student at the University of Houston and both happen to be of transgender experience themselves. I am certain that they have created an IRB approved completely anonymous and confidential research study that will provide solid results to be presented at WPATH in Thailand in 2014 and later published in recognized professional journals as well as be sensitive to the unique needs of our families. This is an amazing opportunity for us and I hope that you will consider participating.

This project has been reviewed by the University of Houston Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects, (713) 743-9024.

You may contact Colt at sameier@uh.edu with any questions.
