Two UNC researchers, associate professor Kia Lilly Caldwell (Dept of African, African American and Diaspora Studies) and doctoral candidate Niasha Fray (Dept of Health Behavior) will give a talk on April 16th exploring the impact of patient and health provider communication on the HIV testing behaviors of middle socioeconomic status (SES) Black women in North Carolina. Based on qualitative interview data, their findings point to the importance of patient self-advocacy and missed opportunities for providers to address HIV stigma, correct patients’ misperceptions about HIV, and assist them in improving their efforts to remain healthy.
