This webinar will focus on the question of why there is a raging epidemic of addiction. The current opioid epidemic is a symptom of the fraying of the socio-economic fabric of rural United States. We will also look at the reasons why funding should be targeted to substance misuse, not to the drug of the moment.
At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to describe current guidelines and epidemiology for HIV testing among adolescents, identify key steps in educating health professionals on routine HIV testing for adolescents, and discuss lessons learned and how to implement these lessons learned across EHE regions.
This session will describe PrEP and the importance of adherence during the COVID-19 pandemic, barriers to PrEP that have been brought on by COVID-19, strategies to overcome barriers and promote adherence, and how telehealth can be used to promote PrEP.
This webinar will describe the process of vaccine development during COVID-19 and discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with vaccine development.
The relationships between individual behavior and broader-scale societal structures have been central to a range of human phenomena, from job and migration decisions to political participation to the experience of a specific health-related event. Recent progress in predictive analytics along with big data offers a powerful way to explore those relationships but often gives rise to the "black box" problem with little insight into what goes on in the algorithmically learned relationships. In this talk, Dr. Lin will present a spatiotemporal learning approach that leverages a deep learning framework with relevant social theories to help examine the relationship between human-societal activity and their social and geographical contexts, with applications including predicting political protest and opioid overdose events. The approach is not only capable of forecasting the occurrence of future events, but also provides theory-relevant interpretations -- it allows for interpreting what features, from which places, have significant contributions on the forecasting model, as well as how they make those contributions.
