Allen LeBlanc will present "Extending Minority Stress Theory: The Case of People in Same-Sex Relationships" for the The 2019 Summit on LGBTQ Families.

Dr. LeBlanc teaches Medical Sociology, Sociology of Mental Health, and Social Problems. His research on societal and individual responses to chronic illness and disability; the social etiology of stress and health; and government programs relating to disability and health care for low-income Americans has been widely published. His current interests include the study of social stress, psychosocial resources, and health. In particular, he examines the relational context of stress experience, focusing for example on how stress is shared between persons in intimate relationships. His ongoing projects include a five-year study of "Minority Stress and Mental Health among Same-Sex Couples," funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development.
