Adam Carrico PhD

I am building a program of community-engaged, clinical research to optimize the effectiveness of HIV treatment as prevention (TasP) among marginalized, underserved populations living with HIV/AIDS. My efforts to pursue this program of research are supported by my clinical research examining the efficacy of psychological interventions for HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM) and documenting HIV-related health disparities among stimulant (i.e., cocaine, crack, and methamphetamine) users. Currently, I am conducting a series of studies to develop and pilot test psychological interventions to address the co-occurring, intertwined epidemics of stimulant use and HIV/AIDS among MSM.
