Getting to Zero: Religious Leaders as Trusted Messengers for Eliminating HIV/AIDS
Maury Strauss Distinguished Public Lecture presented by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC
About This Lecture
Dr. Fuller will discuss how a new science-based HIV/AIDS intervention, which involves the participation of religious leader networks, is helping address infectious disease health disparities in the United States, Zambia, Botswana, and South Africa. This model, designated the “Trusted Messenger Intervention,” reframes HIV as a viral infection that can be controlled and encourages trusted faith leaders to influence and educate their communities about preventative measures.
This is a free event hosted by Dr. Michael Friedlander and the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute. For more information, please call 540-526-2059 or send an e-mail.
