Neighborhood Activity Space, Drugs and HIV Risk Among Black MSM in the Deep South
Funded by: Center for Drug Use and HIV Research
Project dates: June 2015 - May 2016
Principal Investigator: Duncan, Dustin

The study determined the feasibility (as measured by a pre- and post-survey as well as objectively measured adherence to the GPS protocol) of obtaining GPS spatial behavior data to define activity space neighborhoods, using an innovative 2-week GPS protocol, among a sample of 25 Black MSM in Jackson, MS.
