Investigaytors 2023-2024 Cohort

We are currently recruiting for the 2023-2024 cohort of the Investigaytors, and everyone is encouraged to participate – you don’t have to be a student, and no prior academic and research experience is required! We recognize the history of racism and ablism in health research, and we especially encourage people who identify as Indigenous, Black, or a person of colour, a recent immigrant, a person living with disabilities, HIV+, and/ or a queer guys across the spectrum.

Program participants are trained in quantitative and qualitative research skills, social determinants of health, HIV prevention and sexual health, and how research can be used to address health inequities and knowledge gaps.

Investigaytors will meet in-person for 1.5 hours every Tuesday evening, from 6pm to 7:30pm, beginning on January 31, 2023. Meetings are packed with fun, learning, discussions, exchanging ideas, making friends, and thinking about a better queer future! There will also be games nights, picnics, and coffeeshop meet-ups.
