Community Planning & Health Education
I work with the Membership/Community Liaison Committee and the New Approaches
to Prevention Committee to plan and coordinate agendas, work
plan, and yearly goals. I also support HPPC activities (eg. agenda development
and meeting logistics) and provide condoms and health education to high
school students through the Condom Availability program.
I am Research
Coordinator with the HOPE study, which is evaluating an enhanced
intervention for HIV-positive inmates. As research coordinator,
I track recidivisim of participants, calculate monthly follow-up rates,
maintain accounting of stipend disbursements, and assist in data analysis,
manuscript preparation, and dissemination of findings. I’m also writing
a manuscript detailing the methods used by study staff to track participants.

Care Clinic at the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic (1991-1996); HIV test counselor;
Prevention Point needle exchange program volunteer (1993); Condom
Availability Program Survey (New York, NY 9/94-12/94); and Condom
Availability Program at Mission High School (1/96-6/96 & 9/96-12/96).
