Glass Half Full: Resilience Among Gay Men as an Emerging HIV Prevention Justice Strategy
Resilience Among Gay Men: An emerging research focus has been looking at the role resilience plays in helping gay men stay healthy. This line of thinking turns conventional HIV prevention on its head asking "If most gay men are HIV negative, what are they doing to stay that way and what can we learn from those insights?"
Panelists: Amy Herrick, University of Pittsburgh; Steven Wakefield, HIV Vaccine Trials Network.
IOM Report: The Institutes of Medicine, the non-profit body that advises the public on medical matters, recently released a report highlighting the glaring gaps in knowledge about LGBTQ health. We'll discuss what's in the report and its implications for shaping future research.
CDC Sexual Health Framework: In response to the staggering disparities evident in new HIV infections, the CDC has called for a re-alignment of its activities around a new 'sexual health framework.' We'll find out just what this entails and what its implications are for HIV prevention justice.
