First-year medical students participated in small group discussions and activities focused on HIV/AIDS to integrate and apply what they’d learned previously in a new context.
Two HIV-associated cancers are less common since the advent of antiretroviral therapy, but still occur in patients with controlled HIV, according to a Northwestern Medicine study.
The medical school’s annual Global Health Days event featured presentations on student research conducted around the world, as well as expert discussions on healthcare in Africa and HIV/AIDS treatment.
A five-year, $3.3 million grant will help Northwestern Medicine scientists develop and expand a software tool that will simplify and streamline social network data collection related to HIV transmission.
Robert Murphy, MD, director of Feinberg’s Center for Global Health, will lead a program training scientists in Mali to conduct research on HIV and mycobacterial disease.
