A Northeastern professor made a soap opera about HIV prevention
Boston Magazine - 12/03/2015
A Northeastern professor is using an interesting vehicle for spreading information about AIDS prevention: a soap opera.
Rachel Jones, an associate nursing professor at Northeastern, has focused her research on curtailing HIV and AIDS transmission among urban women, particularly African American women. To move her mission forward, the National Institute of Nursing Research, part of the National Institutes of Health, awarded Jones a $2 million grant to put toward intervention efforts targeted at urban African American women between the ages of 18 and 29.
