Dr. Karla Galaviz Wins Diversity Supplement Award
Karla Galaviz won an NIDDK administrative supplement to our GCDTR P30. This award will support her transition into a faculty position at Emory University and a research study focused on addressing diabetes in the HIV Setting. Specifically, Karla will develop a parsimonious, high-performing diabetes risk screening tool for HIV-infected populations. She will then assess the acceptability, clinical applicability, and impact of the tool in routine HIV care. This award represents a promising step towards addressing cardio-metabolic diseases in HIV care and a strong platform to support Karla’s career as an independent investigator.
