UConn studies ways to improve HIV patient lives

Two NIH-funded study programs at UConn School of Medicine are studying ways to promote HIV testing and to improve the lives of people living with HIV in Connecticut, especially the unemployed and women.

Dr. Carla Rash at UConn Health received $3.4M from the National Institute on Drug Abuse to pursue the PROMOTE study. Drs. Kristyn Zajac, Sheila Alessi, Kevin Dieckhaus, and Martin Cherniak are co-investigators on the study as well. more
