New Hampshire Fellow and Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth student Jake Perlson launched Granite State PrEP Connect, a peer navigation program to expand a...ccess to HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis, commonly called PrEP. He recently blogged about his work and its importance for HIV prevention and treatment, particularly among young people, on the NH HIV Planning Group’s (HPG) blog. “Youth are among the most disproportionally affected by HIV nationwide, accounting for over one in five of our country’s new infections,” Perlson writes. “They are less likely to know their HIV status and face special challenges in accessing preventative services like PrEP.”

Granite State PrEP Connect is a program of HPG and Perlson’s community partner, Dartmouth-Hitchcock's HIV Program. Great work, Jake! Thank you for your service!
