“Vitamin D and Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) on Progression of Dental Disease in MSM with and without HIV.”
The aims of this project are to generate foundational evidence on the association of AUD and oral health in MSM with HIV, strengthen electronic systems of care to integrate HIV and related dental care by enhancing research capacity for future intersectional research on oral health and HIV, and create and refine our study protocol procedures for a future NIH R01 looking into Vitamin D, AUD, and dental disease in MSM in Peru.
