Speaker Bio:

Peter A. Newman is a full professor in the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work and an affiliate of the Joint Centre for Bioethics. One of his lines of social research addresses the use of biomedical prevention technologies, including HPV and future HIV vaccines, HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis, and most recently Covid-19 vaccination, among marginalized populations in Canada and in resource-constrained settings. From 2020-2022 he led #SafeHandsSafeHearts, a multisite RCT of an eHealth intervention to reduce psychological distress and promote protective behaviors among LGBTQ+ and racialized populations in Toronto, Mumbai and Bangkok.
