$5.8 million grant to improve health for minorities living with HIV
An intervention to increase engagement with treatment among African-American/black and Hispanic people living with HIV has been funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a part of the National Institutes of Health. The study will target people who are neither taking antiretroviral therapy nor consistently engaged in HIV primary care.
Linda M. Collins, director of The Methodology Center and Distinguished Professor of Human Development and Family Studies, received a five-year $5.8 million grant to design this intervention using a pioneering engineering-inspired framework -- the Multiphase Optimization Strategy.
