Podcasting CROI: Bringing the Science to You

By Miguel Gomez, AIDS.gov Director

I've been at the 18th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) Exit Disclaimer this week in Boston. As we mentioned in earlier posts and tweets, the CROI conference committee has been making scientific session available as webcasts and podcasts Exit Disclaimer.

As Dr. Valdiserri mentioned in last week's post, "The conference provides a critically important global forum for basic scientists, clinicians, and global health researchers to present, discuss, and critique their investigations into the epidemiology and biology of human retroviruses and the diseases they produce with the ultimate goal of translating laboratory and clinical research into progress against the AIDS epidemic—at home and abroad."

We encourage you to take a look at the video, audio, slides and downloads that are available on the conference site Exit Disclaimer. It's another example of how new media helps to level the playing field - providing us all with access to information, like the research and news coming from CROI. And continue to stay tuned to this blog for Dr. Valdiserri's updates.

By Michele Clark

The 2009 National HIV Prevention Conference Exit Disclaimer is reaching over 3,500 of our colleagues in Atlanta this week. Thanks to conference organizers, this year’s highlights are shared to those unable to attend via Twitter: CDC NPIN Exit Disclaimer, AIDS.gov Exit Disclaimer, and others are tweeting with the hashtag #NHPC09 Exit Disclaimer. CDC also provides conference participants with text message updates Exit Disclaimer, and videotaped many of the presentations to broaden reach (CDC NPIN Exit Disclaimer should have these posted around September 7th).

Last week, Miguel Gomez, Director of AIDS.gov, sat down with Admiral Joxel Garcia, the U.S. Assistant Secretary for Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), to record a podcast about health and the Latino community in the U.S. As we mentioned in a past blog post, and in our “New Media Toolkit,” podcasts can be a simple way to gather and provide audio and/or video information to your target audience. But once you have created them, how can you help people find and subscribe to your podcasts?

To help us answer this question, we turned to Pete Alcorn, Manager of Podcasts at Apple’s iTunes, Exit Disclaimer the largest podcast directory and the most common venue for people to subscribe to podcasts (Note: there are many other directories, including Zune, Exit Disclaimer Odeo,Exit Disclaimer and Podcast Alley Exit Disclaimer). Miguel and our colleague Fred Smith from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention met Pete at the New Media Expo in Las Vegas last summer.

Tomorrow is National Latino AIDS Awareness Day Exit Disclaimer (NLAAD). According to a recently released CDC fact sheet, Latinos represent only 15% of the total U.S. population, but make up 18% of new HIV infections.

They are infected with HIV at a rate four times greater than white women.

In recognition of this important day, we’re continuing our conversation from last week by highlighting additional examples of using new media tools to reach the Latino community with HIV information.
