Technology's Role in the Future of AIDS Care
SEPTEMBER 30, 2016
The fight against the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic has made huge strides in recent years, but there is still much more work to be done. What role technology will play in that effort has yet to be determined.
In 15 years working at the University of North Carolina, Lisa Hightow-Weidman, MD, MPH, has seen a lot of that progress made from the front lines. It is the work that remains to be done, she said, that has kept her working at the Institutes for Global Health and Infectious Diseases on the Chapel Hill campus. Hightow-Weidman said the new project she is working on can go a long way in helping to not only better educate those people at risk of contracting the disease, but also provide better care for those who have already been living with it.
