Stephenson's mission? "Holistic sexual health research."
"University researchers work to aid LGBTQ sexual and reproductive health" - Michigan Daily. 9/21/2017.
Through his research projects such as [Nexus](https://www.sexualityandhealth.org/nexus) and [Swerve](https://www.sexualityandhealth.org/swerve?lightbox=dataItem-iteeyo2d), Rob Stephenson is dedicated to the study of sexual and reproductive health - and to addressing disparities among oppressed and marginalized populations, particularly the LGBTQ community. Stephenson is also director of U-M's Center for Sexuality and Health Disparities. His goal is to further research in this area and "to make U of M and particularly our center the leader in holistic sexual health research."
