Prevention Science and Community Health
Jahn Jaramillo grew up in Queens in New York City, and now lives in Miami, attending the University of Miami. He is pursuing a doctoral degree in prevention science and community health. Jahn’s research attends to the health of sexual and gender minorities, identity and cultural considerations to health promotion and HIV prevention strategies, and the development and testing of HIV interventions. Jahn aims to deliver medically appropriate and culturally competent care to LGBTQ populations. Through his Ph.D. program, Jahn will build on his previous experiences providing HIV prevention services to LGBTQ individuals. His goal is to become an expert in study design, intervention development, and program evaluation to address persistent gaps in HIV prevention services among Latinx sexual minority men. After his Ph.D. program, Jahn seeks to represent queer faculty in advancing science and providing excellent mentorship to future LGBTQ generations.
