“The Role of Resilience in Addressing Biopsychosocial and Neurocognitive Health Outcomes in Older Adults Living with HIV/AIDS”
Presented by Kristen Krause, School of Public Health, Rutgers
From the event description: Due to the advancement of biomedical interventions, people living with HIV/AIDS are living longer, putting them at increased risk for experiencing neurocognitive, mental health, or psychosocial challenges that impact their overall health and well-being. Resilience, also known as the ability to bounce back from or overcome challenging situations, may help to lessen the effects of these health-related challenges. This presentation will highlight findings from two different studies showing how resilience may act as a buffer against negative health outcomes among older adults living with HIV/AIDS.
