Health Equity Journal Club


In collaboration with the San Diego CFAR Developmental Core, the Health Equity Sociobehavioral Core is excited to launch the Health Equity Journal Club. Journal Club will meet the last Friday of every month from 12:00 - 1:00 pm.

The first four sessions will be dedicated to key conceptual frameworks that have been proposed to study health equity, and we will then move on to specific studies of particular interest in the field of HIV.  The goal of the initial sessions is to gain (and share) a better understanding of the theoretical foundations available to enrich future discussions and hopefully research projects concerned with health equity among participants.

We hope that you are able to participate in this new journal club, and encourage you to invite students or mentees who also might be interested in participating. Attendees will also be welcome to propose relevant articles of interest. 


Please email with any questions.
