Analyzing Longitudinal Qualitative Data: Stories of How and Why
October 13, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr. Clare Barrington, UNC-CH Associate Professor of Health Behavior, CPC Faculty Fellow
Professor Barrington’s research examines social and structural influences on health and health behaviors, with a focus on HIV among female sex workers (FSW), men who have sex with men (MSM), and transgender women in Latin America and Latino migrants in the United States. She has been conducting community-based research in the Dominican Republic for over 15 years. She led a mixed methods study of the social networks of the steady male partners of FSW in the Dominican Republic and most recently has been conducting research to understand and address social and structural determinants of outcomes along the HIV continuum of care among key populations in Santo Domingo. She is also leading an implementation science research project to decentralize HIV care and treatment for MSM in Guatemala City. In North Carolina, she has been studying the intersection between social networks, migration, and HIV among Mexican migrants. Dr. Barrington currently leads the qualitative formative research and evaluation of a study to promote early detection and linkage to care for HIV among Mexican MSM and transgender women in North Carolina. In addition to her HIV-focused work, Dr. Barrington leads the qualitative component of several mixed methods impact evaluations of health and development programs in Ghana and Malawi.
