Culturally focused HIV Advancements through the Next Generation for Equity (CHANGE) Training Program

The University of Miami’s Department of Public Health Sciences, Department of Psychology, and the Center for HIV and Research in Mental Health (CHARM) are pleased to introduce the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)-funded Culturally focused HIV Advancements through the Next Generation for Equity (CHANGE) Training Program.

The CHANGE Training Program is an interdisciplinary, innovative, and timely approach to train the next generation of HIV behavioral scientists with skills to address persistent health disparities in HIV treatment and prevention in Black, Latinx, and LGBTQ communities. The program is tied to CHARM, an NIMH Developmental AIDS Research Center, and is situated in the UM Department of Public Health Sciences (Miller School of Medicine) and Department of Psychology (College of Arts and Sciences). The program will train and support individuals to engage in immersive, community embedded research on Black, Latinx, and LGBTQ populations, and research at the interface of HIV and combating health disparities rooted in structural racism and other “isms” (e.g., homophobia, transphobia).
