Fellow Poteat’s HIV work highlighted
March 5, 2021
Faculty Fellow Tonia Poteat recently co-authored a research paper entitled “HIV and women in the USA: what we know and where to go from here” which was published in The Lancet.
From a story on these research efforts published on TheBodyPro:
“Any decrease in new infections is good news,” said Tonia Poteat, Ph.D., PA-C, M.P.H., co-author of the study and an epidemiologist and assistant professor of Social Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “What is not good news is the fact that the same racial disparities persist despite the overall decrease in new infections. We must take steps to address the unique HIV prevention barriers faced by Black and Hispanic/Latina women.”
