As we approach Thanksgiving and the holiday season, you may be planning to see and gather with family and friends, but experts are urging us to stay vigilant with social distancing, wearing masks, and avoiding large gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Before you gather with people outside of your "quaran-team," join Dr. Keri Althoff to hear best practices for safe gatherings and travel in the coming weeks.
Keri N. Althoff, PhD '08, MPH '05, is an associate professor of epidemiology in the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the School of Medicine. Dr. Althoff's main research interest is aging in the context of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Non-AIDS related aging outcomes of interest include cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, end-stage renal disease, cancer, liver disease, and influenza vaccination and infection. Her methodologic expertise is in designing studies in longitudinal cohort collaborations. She serves as the co-director of the North American AIDS Cohort Collaboration on Research and Design (NA-ACCORD), which is a collaboration of more than 20 longitudinal HIV cohort studies of adults with individual-level harmonized data. The NA-ACCORD is the North American region of the International Epidemiologic Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA) network, where Dr. Althoff shares expertise as a member of the Environmental Influences on Childhood Outcomes (ECHO) Data Analysis Center. She earned her bachelor's degree at the University of Iowa, then her MPH and PhD from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
