Martin often lurked around high school

With the help of several University
doctors, local citizens who are HIV-
positive or have developed AIDS ca
dial an anonymous hotline for personal
The University School of Social
Work is conducting an HIV/AIDS
research project titled "The Positive
Self Care." The project is headed by
Medical School Profs. Candyce Berger
and Larry Gant.
HIV/AIDS patients who feel they
could be taking better care of them-
selves can call the hotline to answer
researchers' questions concerning self@
care procedures. The interviews last
approximately 20-30 minutes.
Berger said the project is designed to
discover what may be associated with
risky self-care procedures in
HIV/AIDS patients. The researchers
hypothesize that patients who have
poor self-care skills may have suffered
past difficulties, including childhood
traumas and substance abuse.
"For this project we are broadening
our definition of risky behavior to not
just social risks, but also medical
risks;' Berger said. "We are looking to
find why these patients are not engag-
ing in positive self-care after the diag-
nosis of a disease like HIV or AIDS"
Researchers ask questions pertaining
to patients' medical histories as well as
previous personal experiences.
"Some people do change their behav-
ior after diagnosis and some do not. It
not a study of good or bad, it is jus
understanding why not" Berger said
"Our goal is understanding better what
the factors are so that we can eventually
look to develop programs that can help
and support them in engaging in posi-
tive self-care behavior."
Rachel Barish, a researh assistant
and student at the School of Social
Work, said similar research projects
have been conducted on other group
such as heroin users.
"The studies never looked at this
population; nobody has looked at
HIV/AIDS patients specifically"
"What we are interested in is if there
is some connection between certain
childhood experiences and subjects not

"It would be interesting and mean
more if it were conducted toward teen-
