HPTN Debuts New Tool for Researchers!

SUMI TOOLWe cordially invite you to join the webinar introducing the Substance Use Measure Identification (SUMI) Tool. Dr. Shoptaw, Executive Committee Liaison for the Substance Use Scientific Committee SUSC worked in collaboration with Drs. Steffanie Strathdee and Nabila El-Bassel, and the SUSC to develop this tool to help researchers efficiently identify appropriate biomarker and behavioral survey measures to assess substance use in the context of HIV. Dr. Shipeng Chen designed and developed this tool. This collaboration, which began two years ago, involved not just the SUSC, but experts from many fields within the Network.

This web-based, interactive tool demonstration will take place this Tuesday, November 21 at 12:00pm PT.
