My program of research involves developing, implementing and evaluating behavioral HIV, STI and hepatitis prevention programs for incarcerated men and their female partners. This work has been conducted in collaboration with community-based agencies.
From 2000-2008, I directed the Technology and Information Exchange (TIE) Corewhich is responsible for 1) disseminating CAPS’ scientific findings to other researchers, community service providers, policy makers, funders and the general public; 2) providing technical assistance services for program development and evaluation to researchers and community service providers; and 3) promoting community collaborative research and conducting research on the process and best practices of community collaborative research in HIV prevention. The Core’s dissemination products include the HIV Prevention Fact Sheets, the CAPS website, a series of skills-building manuals, and a bi-annual conference.
From 2006-2008, I also directed the Collaborative HIV Prevention Research in Minority Communities Program, a NIH-funded training program with the goals of: 1) increasing the number of minority scientists receiving federal funding; and 2) increasing the amount of HIV prevention research being conducted in communities of color. Program participants from around the US are trained in grant writing skills and then mentored by CAPS faculty for three years. My duties include supervising program staff and faculty, curriculum development and teaching the summer in-residence program, and mentoring individual participants.
