Panel "The Evidence-based Behavioral Interventions that support Prevention with Positive (PwP) Persons"

Friday, October 3 2014 |  8:30-11:30 a.m. 
Location: TBD

From Susan: "Hi everyone, I hope those of you going to the USCA come and see the panel I'm on! My presentation on the panel will be about how we're adapting Mpowerment to address the needs of HIV+ guys, while still addressing HIV prevention with HIV-negative men.
The panel is on Friday morning, 8:30-11:30. I would LOVE to see you!
We'll be talking about research that we've been doing - and our work with our fabulous Mpowerment National Advisory Board - to come up with adaptations.
And then - I'd love to hear your questions & concerns. Please come!"

This panel will feature Susan Kegeles Ph D, Center for AIDS Prevention Studies (CAPS) and Mpowerment Project researcher.

Location: 307, Level 3

From Jose: "This is also a roundtable, so the conversation could theoretically drift away from the topic, but Obed and I will do our best to keep the conversation on point. This is a great topic to promote along with the Mpowerment Project, because MP is a great tool to engage the young guys and gives informal time to talk with them about their needs."
