Public Health Reports and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Surgeon General, would like to invite you and your colleagues to participate in an upcoming meet the author webinar entitled, Implementing Routine HIV Screening in Clinical Settings on August 16, from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Eastern. There is no cost to participate.
In 2006, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) published revised recommendations for HIV testing in health care settings. A major change in the guidelines that CDC recommended, for the first time, that screening for HIV infection should be performed routinely for all patients aged 13–64 years in all health care settings. Ten years later, Public Health Reports released a special issue that presented 15 reports of how these recommendations have been implemented in diverse health care settings in the United States. The webinar will discuss the major themes of the articles in the special issue. The presenters, all authors of manuscripts or editors for the issue, will review their programs to increase routine HIV screening in medical settings. The webinar will also emphasize how new technologies might be used to increase the uptake of HIV screening according to CDC’s recommendations.
Presenters for this webinar include Dr. Patrick Sullivan and Dr. Natalie Crawford, from the Emory University Rollins School of Public Health, Dr. Amy Nunn, from the Brown University School of Public Health and Rhode Island Public Health Institute, and Dr. James W. Galbraith, from the University of Alabama School of Medicine.
