    This Great New Community Survey

    The Virginia Department of Health and the University of Virginia are collaborating on a survey that explores the health, wellness, and experience of transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) Virginians.

    Our goal is to use the results to enhance and expand services for TGNC people living in Virginia.

    NOW RECRUITING! SHUTi OASIS: Sleep Healthy Using the Internet for Older Adult Sufferers of Insomnia and Sleeplessness

    Sleep Healthy Using the Internet for Older Adult Sufferers of Insomnia and Sleeplessness

    Adults with insomnia ages 55 or older are needed for a National Institute on Aging research trial being conducted through the University of Virginia School of Medicine.  The online, confidential research study is testing whether an intervention delivered via the Internet is an effective way to improve sleep in adults with insomnia. The intervention (website) is easy to use, and technical support is provided throughout the study.

    This University of Virginia research trial is funded by the National Institute on Aging. Participants will use the Internet program for about 9 weeks, and complete online assessments (questionnaires and sleep diaries) four different times during a 12 month period.  Participants receive free access to the Internet program and up to $200 in gift certificates for completion of study assessments.  To learn more, go to or call toll free 1-855-GO-SHUTi (1-855-467-4884).
