Emory University's School of Nursing will use a new five-year, $2.9 million federal grant to study the effects of health literacy on African Americans' compliance with HIV/AIDS medication regimens. This is the fourth National Institutes of Health grant study leader Drenna Waldrop-Valverde has received to research whether African Americans with HIV/AIDS are more likely to misunderstand treatment instructions due to poor health literacy skills, raising their risk of advanced disease.
