NOLA Gem Study

Neighborhoods and the places we spend time are important to our health and health behavior and can affect our daily experiences such as our mood, stress and the way we deal with things. The NOLA GEM project will explore these daily experiences to develop a mobile application to address stress and promote healthy behavior for HIV+ individuals. This work is supported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (R34AA028961-01).
