This trial will study whether an adapted version of interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) is an effective treatment for alcohol use disorder (AUD) in gender minority (GM) individuals. GM individuals experience disproportionately high rates of hazardous drinking and AUD, and there are no evidence-based alcohol interventions for this population. The study will use mixed-methods formative research with an established multi-site longitudinal GM cohort to develop and assess the feasibility of the adapted IPT intervention.
Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
