Event Details

As a follow-up to the special issue of the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes devoted to health communication and its role in and impact on HIV prevention and care, authors will meet with invited guests at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. This journal supplement tackles a wide swath of topics, seeking to introduce a wider biomedical audience to core health communication principles, strategies, and evidence of effectiveness. Better awareness of health communication strategies and concepts can enable the broader biomedical community to partner with health communication experts in reducing risk of HIV, sexually transmitted infections, and tuberculosis and maximize linkage and adherence to care.

Guests of the National Press Club on July 15th include:

Moderator, David R. Holtgrave, PhD, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Rick S. Zimmerman, PhD, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health presenting, Validity of Behavioral Measures as Proxies for HIV-related Outcomes

Blair T. Johnson, PhD, Department of Psychology, Center for Health, Intervention, and Prevention (CHIP), University of Connecticut, presenting, Behavioral Interventions for HIV Prevention: Role of Message Content

Claire Holland, MSPH, Research Coordinator, Center for Public Health and Human Rights, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health presenting based on a manuscript by Stefan Baral, M.D.
