Clarice‘s research aims to improve the social conditions of black women living with HIV who are disproportionately burdened by the HIV epidemic. She conducts studies from an ecological perspective to transform how society understands HIV-related stigma. Through community-based participatory research methods, Clarice centers the voices of black women living with HIV and uses multilevel approaches to advocate for transformative change. Ultimately, her goal is to shift the national dialogue on dismantling structural stigma from placing individual blame to supporting collective action, specifically as it relates to black women living with HIV.
