CHASING COVID Cohort study, T5K study profile, grand rounds with implementation science pioneer Enola Proctor, ISPH in the news, and more
The HIV epidemic in the United States disproportionately affects younger gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (GBM). Though Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is effective at reducing new HIV infections, fewer than ten percent of people eligible for PrEP are estimated to be using it.1 In order to better understand how to design […]
For immediate release. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CUNY Institute for Implementation Science in Population Health (ISPH) and the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy (CUNY SPH) have launched the Communities, Households and SARS/COV-2 Epidemiology (CHASING) COVID study. The study team moved quickly to enroll a prospective cohort of >7,000 […]
For immediate release. The role of primary care physicians continues to expand to meet the increasing demand for more comprehensive and complex services. Given the recent threats to Title X funding and the 2019 federal appeals court decision to uphold the “domestic gag rule,” implementation of reproductive health services in the primary care setting is […]
For immediate release. Assistant Professor Hongbin Zhang and Associate Professor Elizabeth Kelvin, investigators with the CUNY Institute for Implementation Science in Public Health at CUNY SPH, were awarded an R03 grant from the National Institutes of Health to work with collaborators from Columbia University and University of Cuenca, Ecuador, to tackle the difficult disease of neurocysticercosis (NC). Despite accumulating evidence […]
March 3, 2020 ISPH Investigator and CUNY SPH Assistant Professor Hongbin Zhang was awarded an R21 grant from the National Institutes of Health to work with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) developing a change-point model on the timing of anti-retroviral treatment (ART) initiation after HIV diagnosis. The primary goal […]
“To encourage PrEP adherence, it should be affordable, the insurance coverage should be reliable and without needless mandates, and it should be easy to make an appointment,” D’Angelo says.
“This study improves our understanding of how gene set enrichment analysis methods perform in biomedical applications, and will help future developments focus on improvements relevant to public health.”
Violence against women and children is a global epidemic that carries lifelong consequences for individuals, families, and communities. Adolescent girls are particularly at risk because they may not have access to supportive interventions, most of which are aimed at supporting either married adult females or younger children.
According to a study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases, New Yorkers living with HIV are being treated sooner after infection. The time to treatment initiation was reduced in tandem with expanded HIV testing and treatment efforts in New York City.
