Dissemination for HIV Prevention Interventions: How to Share Your Project’s Story at a Conference and Make an Impact

Thursday, July 14, 2016, 11 am – 12 pm CDT

This webinar is geared towards public health professionals implementing HIV prevention interventions who are beginners at dissemination or who may be seeking to refresh their skills.

Please RSVP online here. We hope you can join us!


Information that is disseminated from HIV prevention projects often comes from process and outcome evaluation activities, such as describing how and why the project was created or explaining the impact of the program on clients. Dissemination means making information available and usable to a desired audience through a variety of channels or formats.

Planning and implementing HIV prevention activities often leaves little opportunity for project dissemination, yet it is a key part of the programmatic life cycle. Dissemination is beneficial to the growth and sustainability of agencies, the professional development of staff members, and the HIV prevention field.

In this webinar, presenters will:

  • Discuss and demonstrate the importance of dissemination for public health professionals implementing HIV prevention projects
  • Describe the process of applying to present at a conference, including guidance on how to write a successful abstract
  • Provide tips on how to effectively design and present a poster presentation

This webinar is being provided by the Center for the Evaluation of HIV Prevention Programs in Chicago, a collaborative project between Northwestern University and the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, supported by the Chicago Department of Public Health.
