Research Opportunities

The  University of Miami-Department of Adolescent Medicine, is one of three national sites participating in the Young Men’s Health Project (YMHP). YMHP is an HIV negative risk reduction/intervention program conducted in conjunction with ATN and PRIDE. Participants must be between the ages of 15 and 24 years old.  Additional eligibility criteria includes being an HIV negative man who has sex with men, and has recently used drugs and/or alcohol.

Once enrolled, participants partake in four intervention sessions with a community health worker where they discuss their thoughts on topics related to sexuality, sexual health, substance use and HIV. Compensation for full participation is 290 dollars.  The purpose of the study is to deliver and test an HIV risk reduction/intervention program known as YMHP.  YMHP  has shown to be effective in research settings. This study examines how the program works in “real life clinics” or remotely (over the phone or video chat).
