Dr. Christopher Fisher, assistant professor in the COPH Department of Health Promotion, Social and Behavioral Health, and Dr. Adi Pour, director of the Douglas County Health Department, will co-lead this project. Mr. Dylan Zaner, an undergraduate student at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, will assist with the project. The Midlands Sexual Health Research Collaborative and the Nebraska Sexual Health Coalition will partner to research the sexual literacy of a generalizable population-based sample of Nebraska adults as a way to inform interventions aimed at increasing sexual literacy for Nebraskans. Primary activities for the study will be conducted in Omaha with collaborative partners from across the state, including Lincoln, Kearney, Hastings, Wisner, and Scottsbluff. Over the long term, the project aims to build sustainable community-academic partnerships to address sexual health in Nebraska through a collaborative research process. Dr. Pour said “I am very excited about this grant opportunity since it will for the first time provide data on sexual literacy of adult Nebraskan’s that will then inform community-based programs.”
