Gillum's research is focus of podcast

Dec 31 2012

Research by Tameka L. Gillum, associate professor of Public Health, was the subject of a recent podcast produced by Sage Publications.

The study, co-authored by Gloria DiFulvio, assistant professor of Public Health, is titled “‘There’s so much at stake’: Sexual minority youth discuss dating violence” and was published in the July edition of Violence Against Women: An International and Interdisciplinary Journal.

In the podcast, Gillum discusses the recent work and the significance of the findings in relation to the health and well-being of sexual minority youth.

The study and related work also prompted a recent invitation for Gillum to serve as a panelist at the National Black Justice Coalition’s Annual OUT on the Hill Summit, held last month in Washington D.C. The panel was titled “Healthy Bodies, Healthy Communities: An Exploration of Current Trends and Challenges.” The summit brought together elected officials, researchers, black LGBT activists, faith leaders and youth to participate in discussion, strategizing and organizing around issues affecting the black LGBT community.
