[Perspectives] Judith Bradford: a pioneer of research on LGBT health

Almost 30 years before the 2011 landmark report of the US Institute of Medicine (IOM) on health disparities among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, Judith Bradford did one of the first community research investigations of HIV/AIDS in gay men. At that time, Bradford says, this “hidden population” was not eager to answer questions about their personal lives for the survey she was doing for Virginia state Department of Health. The survey was a challenge she now describes as “an opportunity” that would become her PhD dissertation at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and set her on a course that determined her life’s work as a population scientist.
