Troy Wood currently works as a Clinical Research Coordinator for the Duo Project, a longitudinal gay male couples study investigating how relationship dynamics either help or hinder HIV treatment adherence. Along with his other team members, Troy has been responsible for conducting in-depth quantitative and qualitative interviews and collecting and processing blood specimens as a certified phlebotomist. Troy’s professional activities also include recruiting, screening, and enrolling serodiscordant and seroconcordant HIV-positive male couples for the study.
Prior to coming to CAPS in 2009, Troy volunteered for several years as an HIV counselor at Magnet, a community sexual-health center in the Castro district. This experience strengthened his commitment to doing community-based work to improve the health and well-being of sexual minorities.
Troy was born and raised in North Carolina. Before moving to San Francisco in 2005, he received his BA in Anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
