Michael is a lecturer in the School of Nursing at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He is also finishing his PhD in Nursing Science in the College of Nursing at Medical University of South Carolina. He has published a number of articles related to LGBT populations. His current research examines predictors of cervical cancer screening among LGBT females, including transmen. Here is a message from Michael:
Hello! First, congratulations to everyone who was involved with establishing the GLMA Nursing Section! It is an exciting time to be part of this movement in nursing. I look forward to working with the leadership group and the members of the GLMA Nursing Section, and I am confident that wonderful things will come from this section. Momentum can already be seen among the different workgroups! If you are interested in being part of this momentum, please email a workgroup leader or any of the leadership team. I look forward to collaborating with everyone as we work toward advancing LGBT health equality!
Just like Mary Foley, I could not do this work without the love and support of my husband, Matthew Roell. The picture to the right is of him and I during a winter vacation in London, England.
