The Adolescent Medicine Trials Network for HIV/AIDS Interventions (ATN) research program aims to defeat the rising HIV epidemic among adolescents and young adults in the United States. ATN is led by investigators with innovative thinking and novel approaches to increase awareness of HIV status in youth and, for those diagnosed with HIV, increase access to health care.
"As long as you don’t let the disease control you, and you control the disease, you’re good to go." Watch this video from Kendrick Forte, ATN-YEAH member.
