Jallicia Jolly, Ph.D. student in the Department of American Culture, was recently interviewed by the Michigan Radio program Stateside regarding her research on how HIV-positive black women in Detroit and beyond are connecting and advocating for more resources.

African-American heterosexual women have the highest HIV rates of any demographic in the country, but they continue to be less likely to receive adequate care despite significant strides in treatment since the beginning of the AIDS crisis.

Jolly’s research looks at how HIV treatment can be made more accessible, more culturally informed, and with a view to patients as holistic people.
