STDs and HIV: From Malawi to the United States to Ohio
Sexually transmitted diseases (STD), including HIV infection, cause a considerable amount of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Throughout my career, I have focused on the epidemiology of STD in a variety of contexts. In this seminar, I will describe some of my previous work focusing on acute HIV infection in Malawi, spatial assessments of gonorrhea and syphilis in North Carolina, and chlamydial infection in the United States. I will conclude with an introduction to two newly funded projects that will address syphilis in Columbus and the opioid crisis in Ohio.
