New Funding for DFPM-RED

DFPM-RED’s Dr. Leanne Whiteside-Mansell, Dr. Daniel A. Knight, LaTunja Sockwell, and Cindy Crone have been awarded funding from Gilead Investigator Sponsored Research.

This project will implement HIV education within Pulaski County Drug Court (PCDC) one of 43 Arkansas Adult Drug Courts (ADC). The training was developed in collaboration with the Arkansas Department of Health but will be modified to include clinical preventive options such as oral Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and risk of Hep C. The training, titled Embracing Healthy Love (EHL), has been piloted and continues in two northwest Arkansas drug courts by RED including Isis Martel.

$248,543; 18 months of funding – community health work to be hired, part time RA and trainer.
