Seminar to examine sexual behavior, resilience in gay and bisexual men


Dr. Jeffrey T. Parsons, distinguished professor of psychology at Hunter College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, will discuss his research at 12:15 p.m. tomorrow in Main Hall 2227 at OSU-Tulsa.

Parsons will examine the results of his study, “Sexual Behavior, Syndemics and Resilience in a National Sample of Gay and Bisexual Men.” He will identify themes related to resilience extracted from the data and examine the variability in sexual health and sexual risk among that population.

His general research interests are health behaviors, LGBTQ issues and interventions designed to change sexual or drug use behaviors among various populations. He is the director of the Hunter College Center for HIV/AIDS Educational Studies and Training (CHEST).

The event is presented by the Center for Family Resilience at OSU-Tulsa and the OSU College of Human Sciences. A light lunch will be provided.
