NIMHD Remembers Dr. Judith Bradford, Advisory Council Member


NIMHD staff express condolences on the passing of Judith Bradford, PhD, friend and ardent supporter of the Institute. Dr. Bradford passed away this past weekend after a long and courageous battle with cancer.  She was appointed to the NIMHD Advisory Council in 2014. Dr. Bradford was Director of the Center for Population Research in LGBT Health and Co-Chair of The Fenway Institute in Boston, Mass.  She played a key role in building a framework for LGBT-focused research and teaching. She had the distinction of serving on the first Institute of Medicine (IOM) panel focused on lesbian health almost 20 years ago, and was key in the IOM’s recent landmark report on sexual and gender minority health disparities. Dr. Bradford was the first research scientist to head a NIMHD-funded population studies center focused on sexual and gender minority health, and the first to receive NIH funding to support a summer institute to train the next generation of LGBT health researchers, held at the Fenway Institute. She will be greatly missed by all.
