Welcome to the Sexual Health Equity Lab!

The Sexual Health Equity Lab (the SHEL) is housed in the School of Public Health at San Diego State University. The SHEL is dedicated to promoting sexual health equity among disproportionately affected populations, such as racial/ethnic, sexual, and gender minorities. Under the direction of Dr. Erik Storholm, the SHEL focuses on improving these inequities through behavioral and biomedical interventions focusing on improving mental health, reducing substance abuse, preventing violence, and reducing HIV/STI transmission.
