PSMG Virtual Grand Rounds now starting next Tuesday @ 12pm CT with Carl Latkin

We are looking forward to Ce-PIM‘s first Prevention Science and Methodology Group (PSMG) Grand Round scheduled next Tuesday, September 19 @ 12pm CT/1pm ET with Carl Latkin from Johns Hopkins University, who will be presenting on Social network approaches to HIV Prevention and Care. 

The presentation will outline how social network approach can be utilized to reach hidden populations. Embedded in social network dynamics are social influence process that can be capitalized on to promote and sustain behavior change. The presentation will briefly provide guidance on tailoring social network inventories and then focus on developing and implementing RCT of network interventions and measuring outcomes and controlling for contamination.


Ce-PIM‘s Prevention Science and Methodology Group (PSMG) is a virtual network of more than 480 empirical researchers and methodologists aimed to advance the field of prevention science and support the implementation of evidence-based prevention programs. The PSMG grand rounds are now conducted virtually over the internet, allowing members to view, question, and comment live from their own computer with leading scientists and methodologists at no cost. Access to live presentations is restricted to PSMG members. However, PSMG presentations are recorded and will be publicly accessible on our website two weeks after the presentation date.

The PSMG will host sessions devoted specifically to HIV Prevention (chaired by Nanette Benbow and Gregory Phillips) as well as Implementation Science (chaired by J D Smith), Agent-Based Modeling (chaired by Wouter Vermeer), and Innovations in Research Designs (chaired by Booil Jo).
