The Expanded HIV Testing and Linkage to Care Program (xTLC) institutes routine testing programs in disproportionately affected populations in Chicago. We collaborate with community-based organizations and hospitals to ensure that HIV testing and subsequent linkage to care becomes a standard and unstigmatized part of health care.
Dustin T. Duncan, ScD is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Population Health at the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine, where he directs NYU’s Spatial Epidemiology Lab. Dr. Duncan is a Social and Spatial Epidemiologist, studying how specific neighborhood characteristics influence population health and health disparities. Dr. Duncan's research and that of the field of spatial epidemiology is summarized in my forthcoming co-edited book Neighborhoods and Health (2nd edition) with Dr. Ichiro Kawachi (Oxford University Press, in progress: anticipated publication date of Spring 2018). Methodologically, his research utilizes a geospatial lens to apply spatially explicit approaches such as computer-based geographic information systems (GIS), web-based geospatial technologies, real-time geospatial technologies, and geospatial modeling techniques. Dr. Duncan’s research appears in leading public health, medical, geography, criminology, and demography journals. He has over 80 publications and book chapters, and he has a broad base of research support.
We spoke with him via Skype after he gave a presentation in Chicago on his GPS-based research studies on MSM.
