The UNC/Emory Center for Innovative Technology (iTech) across the prevention and care continuum

Research Project Description
Rob Stephenson, K Rivet Amico

As part of the UNC/Emory Center for Innovative Technology (iTECH) across the prevention and care continuum, the University of Michigan team will participate in two different research projects embedded within the U19 mechanism (Get Connected and Thrive with Me). Building on the preliminary acceptability and efficacy data from the Get Connected and Thrive with Me, respectively, we will implement and test these HIV prevention and care interventions for young men who have sex with men (YMSM; ages 15-24) living in regions where ATN sites are located. The University of Michigan team will actively participate in the theoretical and methodology development of both interventions, and conduct mixed-methods analyses from the data. In addition, the University of Michigan research team will contribute to Core U19 programmatic activities led by Drs. Hightow-Weidman and Sullivan. Activities include providing counsel on theoretical, technological, and data analytic decisions, as well as leading the development of manuscripts and presentations from the aforementioned interventions.
