In this training, Dr. Hodge builds on the foundational concepts regarding PrEP introduced in the first module and emphasizes the ongoing need for PrEP among Black men who have sex with men (MSM). The trainer guides the audience through a case study in which Jaquis, a 22 year-old Black MSM who was previously on PrEP complained of a rash on the palm of his hands to his provider. Dr. Hodge uplifts the importance of connecting young BMSM patients to PrEP based on evidence that points to an increased lifetime risk of HIV diagnosis among this population. By prescribing and educating patients on this life-saving medication, healthcare providers can reduce existing disparities in PrEP eligibility and utilization.
