USC Professor to Study Homeless Men, Risky Sexual Behavior
University of Southern California School of Social Work Professor Suzanne Wenzel received almost $2 million in federal stimulus funds to study risky sexual behavior among homeless men.
Homeless men are at a higher risk of getting and spreading sexually transmitted diseases. And 83 percent of women with HIV/AIDS were infected by men.
“Our study will move the field forward by shedding light on heterosexual HIV risk factors in a population that is among the most vulnerable and stigmatized in the United States and that has suffered from a dearth of attention from the scientific community,” Wenzel said.
