Swetland Seminar: Crowdsourcing Innovation for Digital Technology in HIV-Related Implementation Research

Join Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and the Mary Ann Swetland Center for Environmental Health for the monthly Swetland Seminar Series. This month’s seminar is “Crowdsourcing Innovation for Digital Technology in HIV-Related Implementation Research.” It will take place Tuesday, Oct. 24, from 9 to 10 a.m.

To end the HIV epidemic in the U.S. among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM), researchers must bring to scale evidence-based prevention interventions (EBIs) for minoritized urban Black and Latinx MSM. In support of this goal, the School of Medicine and the Swetland Center conducted a demonstration implementation research project in support of the CDC Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) initiative (Jones et al., 2022) to ‘crowdsource’ innovation for public health prevention impact. Their approach integrated advanced health communications research methods and entrepreneurial methods, with the aim of building multi-sectoral partnerships to accelerate the pace of discovery of strategies that improve and sustain EBI reach.

The seminar will be presented by David W. Lounsbury, associate professor of epidemiology and population health and associate director of patient-centered outcomes research training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
