“Substance Use and HIV in El Salvador: Structural Determinants and Multi-Level Interventions”
Julia Dickson-Gomez, PhD
Medical College of Wisconsin
Tuesday, December 6, 2016
12:00 – 1:30pm
About the Speaker
Dr. Dickson-Gomez studies HIV prevention among drug users in the United States and El Salvador and is also interested in the influence of structural factors on HIV risk. Her research explores the effects of housing policy on drug users’ access to housing, variations in housing status and housing options of drug users, and levels of HIV risk related to these factors. Dr. Dickson-Gomez’s work also explores macro- and micro-social contexts of crack use and HIV risk in communities in El Salvador. Her work develops and evaluates the impact of structural and multi-level interventions in the U.S. and Latin America.
The lecture will take place in Conference Room 14 on the first floor of the Ryan Building at 2006 Hillside Road at the University of Connecticut in Storrs. For directions and maps, see directions to InCHIP.
