Dolores Albarracin and Sally Chan (Co-Investigator) receive R01 from NIMH titled "Mining Social Media Messages for HIV Testing & Prevention Communication." Their project will focus on the disease-burdened population of Men Who Have Sex With Men (MSM), and will develop a highly significant computing infrastructure (Aim 1) to automatically and continuously input social media postings from Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, behavioral data from the American Men Internet Survey (AMIS), and HIV prevalence data from AIDSVu.org, and using that triangulation, to target counties that need social media messages about condom use, HIV testing, and/or PrEP for MSM. Congratulations!
