Adolescent HIV Prevention ECHO

The Alliance is excited to launch a new virtual learning opportunity for primary care providers in SBHCs. The goal of the Adolescent HIV Prevention ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is to reduce Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) acquisition risk for adolescents, particularly those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) or gender non-conforming (GNC). We aim to improve the knowledge, skills, and clinical competency of primary care providers in school-based health centers (SBHCs) in Southern states.

Participants and faculty will explore topics such as clinical care best practices, examining the social determinants of HIV risk, the impact of mental health and substance abuse, and promoting an affirming clinic and school climate. For more information and to apply, please see this flyer and application. Applications are due March 18.
