Several state health departments across the country are making focused efforts to promote and support the wider use of pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV prevention (PrEP) for high risk individuals who seek care in health centers, AIDS Service Organizations, and other health care and community-based organizations. In this webinar, you will learn about current PrEP initiatives by the Massachusetts and Connecticut Departments of Health, including how they are supporting health care providers in adopting PrEP into clinical practice and are facilitating access and coverage for patients. You will also hear from a provider about his experiences prescribing PrEP at a community health center, and from a researcher who will share initial findings from a national study on providers’ first-hand experiences with PrEP initiation and clinical management. The panelists for this webinar includes: Barry Callis, Director of AIDS Prevention and Education, Massachusetts Department of Health; Marianne Buchelli, Health Program Associate, Connecticut Department of Health; Sarah Calabrese, PhD, Yale School of Medicine; and David St George, PA, Fenway Health.
We are encouraging participants to email us their PrEP-related questions in advance. Send any comments or questions to: lgbthealtheducation@fenwayhealth.org.
