Seven chapters delineate the dissertation path. Chapter one provides a background and introduces the research problem and study rationale. Chapter two presents a detailed review of the literature; provides a focused overview of the epidemiologic landscape of HIV among African Americans in the U. Chapter three outlines the methods utilized to answer the various research questions. Chapters four, five, and six each function as distinct manuscripts addressing the various research questions.
Strategies and lessons learned from a national sample of ASOs informed the development of a context specific framework for successfully implementing PrEP outreach among African American groups. This dissertation addresses gaps in literature by utilizing findings to create a framework that serves as recommendations for other ASOs, including Louisville ASOs, seeking to improve PrEP service delivery and outreach among African American priority groups. Electronic Theses and Dissertations.
Paper Graduate and professional programs that include teaching and research mentorship as part of their curricula. Teaching and mentorship would be inherently required of faculty.

Universities and training programs should be encouraged to recognize the contributions of faculty who mentor aspiring investigators. The development or use of culturally congruent theories and measures.
