Dolores Albarracin, psychology professor at the University of Florida, will speak from 2:10 to 3 p.m. in room 304 of Lewis Hall. She will discuss, "Power and Infection with HIV: How to effectively attract and change the behavior of disenfranchised populations."
Albarracin will discuss HIV prevention interventions around the world and misconceptions about the most effective interventionists for women and ethnic minorities. Contrary to the belief that peer education is the gold standard, she has found a general advantage in using experts. The advantage is greater for women and African Americans, but the experts must be female and African Americans. Albarracin will also discuss implications for health and education policy.
