11V - Sexual and Gender Minority status, race/ethnicity, and symptoms of depression and anxiety in the Household Pulse Survey
Methods. Data was collected from the Household Pulse Survey. The association between SGM status and symptoms of depression and anxiety was analyzed utilizing logistic regression methods. Results were stratified by race.
Results. Overall, there were increased odds for symptoms of anxiety and depression in SGM groups compared to non-SGM groups. Race-specific analyses suggest varying odds of anxiety and depression among SGM populations compared to non-SGM groups.
Discussion. Results follow the literature on increased rates of anxiety and depression among SGM individuals. However, racial disparity is not what researchers expect. More information is needed to understand how intersectionality affects SGM status."

33V - Heterogeneity in self-reported hospital experiences in the 2020 North Dakota Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System COVID-19 Supplement
Data. Data for 1588 women(weighted) was drawn from the 2020 ND Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System(PRAMS). Participants reported(Y/N) to questions regarding hospital experiences during delivery, social support, and breastfeeding. Data were summarized using weighted percentages by race, age, income, education, and marital status.
Results. White mothers had lower rates of receiving information on protecting baby(57.4% vs 43.1%), baby being tested for COVID-19(27.3% vs 3.7%), and having trouble consulting a lactation specialist(0% vs 3.3%) than American Indian(AI) mothers. Hospital experiences, social support, and breastfeeding also differed by marital status, education, income, and age.
Discussion. Results suggest differences in hospital experiences for mothers by demographic factors during the COVID-19 pandemic. These data may inform culturally safe healthcare practices to provide equitable experiences for all patients."
