Goal: to talk about HIV research in a fun social environment
When: every month, one evening from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm or until you can’t take it anymore and leave.
How: we send a notice, we engage one or two persons with burning questions and comments on emerging issues to circulate a copy of what we will all read. We meet and engage in a short but thick presentation (maximum 10 minutes) followed by a discussion and divergent conversation. We will alternate between qualitative and quantitative topics. In some cases, we will go simply crazy and have mixed methods or one qualitative and one quantitative.
What is acceptable reading? Manuscripts and reports that will capture the attention of diverse folks and provoke reflection, conversation and even action.
Who? It is open to the world but we will start with interested folks connected to the OHTN network. We will strive to make it engaging for those working on technical aspects as well as those working on theoretical aspects, under/graduate studies, health/AIDS activism and even clinical practice.
Where? We meet at a lovely place of our choice
