John Pachankis appointed the Bliss Associate Professor of Public Health

John Pachankis, recently named as the Susan Dwight Bliss Associate Professor of Public Health, studies the mental health of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals.

Pachankis' research specifically seeks to bring effective mental health treatments to LGBTQ people around the world and to identify strategies for overcoming the significant barriers to getting such treatment to LGBTQ people in greatest need. He also seeks identify the reasons that LGBT individuals experience disproportionately poor mental health outcomes. He uses epidemiological, experimental, and clinical trials methods to conduct this research.
