Dr. Boekeloo's central interest over more than 25 years has been behavioral intervention to prevent sexually transmitted infections (STI), including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) among health disparity populations. As Project Director/Principal Investigator(PI), he has designed and led risk assessment and intervention projects regarding sexual and related behavioral risks. These projects have involved primary care providers, STI clinic patients, adolescent patients in primary care, college freshmen, college students at a historically Black college, high schoolers in an underserved area, African American / Black women, and HIV infected persons unreliably in medical care. As PI of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention founded University of Maryland Prevention Research Center (UMD-PRC), he facilitates university-community research partnerships with underserved, predominantly minority communities focusing on STI / HIV prevention. Recent projects involve the impact of peer community health workers on linking HIV infected, medically unengaged persons into regular healthcare; the impact of a life stress coping on HIV and substance use risk among Black women; the impact of sexting and substance use on HIV risk among freshmen at a historically Black college; and STI / HIV prevention among rehabilitation program clients who are co-addicted to sex and drugs.
