Closely following the completion of his GloCal Health Fellowship, 2021-2022 program alumnus Dr. Angel Algarin has already been appointed to a new faculty position and received a K award to continue his global health research! In August 2022, Dr. Algarin began as an Assistant Professor at Arizona State University’s College of Nursing and Health Innovation. He was also just awarded a K01 award from NIDA, entitled Addressing intersectional stigma through coping, resistance, and resilience to improve methamphetamine use and factors influencing PrEP uptake among Latino MSM: a step towards ending HIV by 2030 (1K01DA055521). This links well to the research he conducted this past year as a GloCal fellow, when he investigated Understanding PrEP stigma, knowledge, and interest among Transgender Women in Tijuana: a step towards ending AIDS by 2030. Dr. Algarin recently presented on his research at the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2022), held in Montreal. Congratulations to Dr. Algarin for these next steps in his global health research career!
