METHODS Cross-sectional surveys administered at a large Gay Pride festival in June 2006(More)
OBJECTIVES We examined differences in sexual partner selection between Black and White men who have sex with men (MSM) to better understand how HIV status of participants' sexual partners and related psychosocial measures influence risk taking among these men. METHODS We collected cross-sectional surveys from self-reported HIV-negative Black MSM and White(More)

OBJECTIVES We conducted a randomized clinical trial to test an integrated behavioral intervention designed to enhance using HIV treatment as prevention by improving medication adherence, reducing risks for other sexually transmitted infections, and minimizing risk compensation beliefs. METHODS Individuals living with HIV/AIDS (n = 436) participated in a(More)
People living with HIV/AIDS may experience health benefits from using the Internet for accessing health information as well as potential health hazards, including seeking sex partners online. This study examined how people with HIV/AIDS are using the Internet and how their Internet use may be associated with health behaviors. HIV-positive men (n = 347) and(More)
