Bonus Episode 003: 2beatHIV.org - Crowd Sourcing for an HIV Cure
Dr. Allison Mathews represents 2BeatHIV which is a research project based at UNC’s Institute for Global Health and Infectious Disease and Department of Social Medicine. We are part of a 5 year, NIH funded grant called searcHIV, focused on examining the social and ethical aspects of research on curing HIV.
2BeatHIV is working to find ways to improve community engagement around HIV cure research. 2BeatHIV wants people to be involved and gain a sense of ownership over the future of HIV cure. The project hosts a series of contests to get the best community-based ideas on how to spread the word about HIV cure research.
2BeatHIV is currently looking for community engagement by submitting your ideas on what a cure would mean to you. Please help us get closer to an HIV cure. Submit your social media posts and or videos to any of the following 2BeatHIV pages explaining what it would mean to yourself or a loved one.
There's a ton of ways to get involved to help us get closer to a cure, what we need are more individuals willing to participate in clinical trials. More diverse participation will REALLY assist in making progress for us . . . . 2 Beat HIV.
