Webinar Description: The webinar presenter, Ngozi Joe-Ikechebelu, will discuss her research experience working in British Columbia with Sub-Saharan African Women Living with HIV (SSAWLH). She will also explore barriers and opportunities for SSAWLH to lead their own research and how that reframes HIV prevention approaches.
