BIG HART: Seminar Series

Building Indigenuity, Generating HIV Science: HIV/AIDS Research Training (BIG HART) will host a six-part seminar series for American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander undergraduate and graduate students at UW and UH who are interested in learning more about HIV research and the various ways the epidemic impacts Indigenous communities across North America. The series will feature both Native and non-Native scientists and practitioners working across the spectrum of HIV science, including former scholars from the Indigenous HIV/AIDS Research Training Program. The monthly sessions will be held in November 2023 through April of 2024.


Among those who attend at least one session, interested students will be given the opportunity to participate in a one-on-one mentorship session with an IHART mentor and/or CFAR investigator. In addition, up to 10 graduate students will also have the opportunity to participate in the UW Principles of HIV/STI Research and Public Health Practice Course.
