March 8, 2021 - Where to Find the ATN at CROI 2021
For the second year in a row, the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) will be held virtually. ATN researchers will be leading presentations and participating in question-and-answer sessions both on-demand and as live presenters within the virtual format.
Dates for CROI 2021 are March 6-10. The agenda is available here. If you are attending CROI, be sure to join these sessions and engage with ATN researchers on these topics:
This year, CROI includes “Science Spotlights,” a new on-demand format that gives attendees the chance to hear about scientific research developments outside of a live oral abstract session format. The format is pre-recorded and on-demand. Attendees can use a chat function to discuss the material with presenters and other attendees during the conference. ATN Science Spotlights:
Science Spotlight: “Hair Mass Spectrometry Imaging Captures Short-and Long-Term PrEP Adherence Changes”
Authors are: Joseph Mwangi, Nicole White, Kelly Knudtson, Amanda Poliseno, Craig Sykes, Lisa Hightow-Weidman, Angela D. Kashuba, Elias Rosen.
Science Spotlight: “Randomized Controlled Trial of an Adherence Intervention in Youth Living with HIV”
Authors are: K. Rivet Amico, Jane C. Lindsey, Michael Hudgens, Ronald Dallas, Keith J. Horvath, Amanda R. Dunlap, Rachel Goolsby, Megan Mueller Johnson, Barbara Heckman, Jessica R. Crawford, Elizabeth Secord, Murli Purswani, Daniel Reirden, Aditya Gaur.
Adolescents, Youth, and PrEP
On Wednesday, March 10, the final day of the conference, attend an on-demand, two-hour symposium on the theme “Adolescents, Youth, and PrEP.” Sybil Hosek, PhD, a psychologist at the Cook County Health and Hospitals System in Chicago, Illinois, within Mental Health & Substance Abuse services, specializing in adolescent psychology, is presenting “PrEP Adherence Interventions for Adolescents and Young Adults” during a 25-minute time slot. A 15-minute live question and answer time follows after the conclusion of the full pre-recorded four-part symposium.
