Biography:

Lisa Eaton works in the University of Connecticut Department of Psychology developing and implementing behavioral interventions for people infected with HIV and at-risk for HIV transmission. She has both international and domestic interests in disease treatment and prevention, including projects to improve HIV testing and counseling for at-risk HIV negative MSM in the US and to identify factors co-occurring with HIV risk taking in a multi-level study among men and women attending shebeens in Cape Town, South Africa. She is also interested in researching effective ways to deliver biomedical interventions such as PrEP, male circumcision and microbicides; in particular, how to address product adherence and changes in behavioral risk taking and how to bolster wide spread availability.
