Graduate student Ian Duncan recently presented findings from the Injection Risk Networks in Rural Puerto Rico¬†project at the Midwest Sociological Society’s annual conference in Chicago. This was the first academic presentation done using data from the project, with many more to come. “Hepatitis C Serosorting Among People Who Inject Drugs in Rural Puerto Rico” was presented as part of “Well-being and Health among Marginalized U.S. Populations” paper session. Other topics in the session included 1) immigrant health after the Affordable Care Act, 2) mental health of Bosnian refugee women, and 3) intimate partner violence in Native communities. The paper was well-received by those in attendance and we are excited for future opportunities to present our research in academic settings such as these.
