Presented by Charles Kamen, PhD, MPH
Dr. Charles Kamen is a clinical psychologist with a strong background and training in behavioral medicine, health disparities and couples-based interventions. His research to date has focused on factors that lead to health disparities among sexual minority populations, specifically disparities in HIV risk and cancer diagnoses, as well as developing and testing dyadic interventions to address these disparities. He has been involved in a grant-funded randomized clinical trial of a group-based HIV prevention intervention targeting men and women living with HIV and reporting histories of trauma, as well as in development of a behavioral intervention targeting spouses and veterans reporting symptoms of trauma post-deployment.
