Tennessee Center For AIDS Research (CFAR) Partnership

2021 - 2022

In 2021, The Tennessee Center for AIDS Research (TN-CFAR) was awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to partner with the Tennessee Meharry HBCU Wellness Project and the Meharry Division of Public Health Practice.  The objective of the partnership is to develop and implement an intervention with the Student Health Ambassadors from LeMoyne-Owen to improve HIV testing and PrEP uptake among African American young adults on the campus and in surrounding Memphis communities.  This one-year proposal will leverage academic, state, and community partnerships to identify greater insights and capacity to provide HIV prevention and care services to an at-risk population.
