The Lesbian Health Project of Southern Maine is recruiting 50 lesbians, their sisters, if they have any, and 50 heterosexual women for a study on osteoporosis. Lesbians have a higher risk for osteoporosis, and the study is designed to calculate that risk. The study is reportedly the first in Maine to focus on lesbians, and the first research on lesbians and osteoporosis in the country, and is being funded by a $7,464 grant from the Lesbian Health Fund of San Francisco. The Maine Center for Osteoporosis Research, an affiliate of St. Joseph's Hospital in Bangor, is one of two sites for the study, and the Catholic hospital's internal review board had some concerns about the study's funding source.
