Latino/a Smokers Living With HIV Study

If you are Hispanic or Latino/a, at least 21 years old, living with HIV, and currently smoke, you may be eligible to participate in this study.

Researchers at the University of Rochester Wilmot Cancer Institute are looking for Latino/a smokers living with HIV to evaluate a text messaging program to quit smoking. Participants are asked to complete a 12-week texting program, in English or Spanish, to help them quit smoking. Compensation along with nicotine patches, gum, and/or lozenges are provided.

Food Insecurity and the HIV Care Continuum

If you are 18 years or older, have the ability to read, write and speak English, are living with HIV, are a New York State resident, are currently prescribed antiretroviral therapy medications for at least 30 days, and are currently receiving food assistance, or have received food assistance in the past 30 days, you may be eligible to participate in this study.

This online survey through the University at Buffalo, Department of Community Health and Health Behavior, aims to understand how people living with HIV who receive food assistance maintain good health. The survey takes approximately 45-60 minutes to complete. Individuals who qualify and complete the online survey will receive an Amazon e-gift card.
