The Trans*National Study team in São Paulo has been hard at work! In December 2018 they completed study enrollment, with a total of 741 study participants enrolled into their cohort. They are continuing follow-up study visits with participants and beginning data analyses on the first survey. This winter (or Brazilian summer), we have our fifth medical student intern from the Santa Casa Medical School working with us here in San Francisco. Bia is examining access to health care services and the use and side effects of non-medical fillers in São Paulo. We at the San Francisco site are thrilled to be learning with and from this amazing team.
In China, the Nanjing study team has been enrolling study participants in a survey and HIV testing project in order to learn more about the community in Nanjing and Suzhou. They have had huge success in connecting with people through social media sites and apps, and are committed to developing future intervention studies with and for the community.
In San Francisco, we are are continuing our follow-up visits and working on analyses of the initial survey data. If you’d like to schedule a follow-up visit, we would love to hear from you! Please contact us via the website, on Facebook, at email@example.com, or by text/call at (415)531-5691. We are ever-grateful for all the time and input that has been shared with us in this process.
