Live from the OHTN Conference HIV Endgame II, What’s Hot with Peer Researchers?

Hosted by James Watson

Tuesday, November 22nd @ 2:30pm EST

This in demand workshop offers an exciting learning experience for peer researchers & emerging academic researchers interested in community-based research. It provided a broad overview of how, why and when peer research assistants (PRAs) should be supported. The support framework introduced in the workshop offers practical support tools and best practices for PRAs in five key areas: administrative, financial, debriefing, educational and study methodology. In this interactive live broadcast, we will chat with experienced academics, service providers and PRAs who attend the event to discuss key takeaways and practical support advice.

"What's Hot?" is an online talk show about community-based research that has people living with HIV as the main protagonists.

This exciting live and online show, will be broadcast using a new and easy to use video conferencing system called Zoom. You will be asked to download a small Zoom software program when you register.
