About the Study

Support trans women’s health research.



Trans Women Connected (TWC) is a research study to enhance your health and well-being.


Where? When?

  • No need to go anywhere! After you join the study, you’ll take a survey on your phone, tablet, or computer. Then you download the health-related app that we ask you to use.
  • There are 4 paid surveys to take. The surveys ask about who you are, your relationships and behaviors, and experiences with COVID. For the first survey, you will be paid after you download the app. Then you'll take 3 more surveys at 1, 3, and 6 months after starting the study.
  • During the first month you have the app, you can earn more when you use the app and complete activities. You can get up to $50 more.


Thank you for your interest in TWC! The study is now closed because we have met our enrollment goal. If you’d like to learn about future studies or see the TWC app when this study is over, please contact us.


  • This study is for self-identified trans women who are sexually active, between ages 18-49, own a smartphone, speak English, and live in the United States.
  • All your answers to the survey questions are kept private. We won’t share your answers and we don’t ask for your name.


  • This study will help researchers and educators learn more about the health needs of trans women. You will be contributing to science. The study is done by ETR and dfusion, two companies that create and research innovative tech-based programs to improve people’s health. The study is funded by The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities.
