Generation Tomorrow: Summer Health Disparity Scholars

The Center for AIDS Research just completed its fourth year of Generation Tomorrow: Summer Health Disparity Scholars. The program brings undergraduate scholars to Johns Hopkins to study HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) health disparities and their intersection with substance use, mental health, violence and the social determinants of health. The program is directed by Dr. Risha Irvin, associate professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases and associate vice chair for diversity and inclusion, and co-directors are Dr. Denis Antoine (Psychiatry) and Dr. Nathan Irvin (ED). In the DOM, Drs. Kathleen Page and Larry Chang, both associate professors in the Division of Infectious Diseases, also served as program mentors and lecturers. The program held a closing poster presentation session on July 27, 2022 where each of the 15 undergraduates presented their summer projects.
