DC CFAR investigator, Manya Magnus, PhD, along with her colleagues, has published an article in Applied Clinical Informatics entitled, "A Feasibility Study of a Telehealth Intervention on Health Care Service Utilization among Transgender Women of Color in Washington, DC".

This article discusses a study that examined Telehealth as one way to support transgender women of color (TWC) in overcoming barriers to care.The purpose of this study was to develop a TWC-specific telehealth intervention to increase access to primary and specialty care and then pilot test this intervention in a sample of TWC with at least one structural barrier to care. Results from the study suggest that telehealth with remote access to peer health consultants who can provide immediate, culturally competent, nonclinical, education, and referral guidance may be effective in overcoming multiple barriers and improving care utilization outcomes for TWC. Telehealth may be an innovative, low-cost solution to improve health outcomes for populations with multiple barriers to health care services.
