Answers to HIV/AIDS Knowledge questions on 2009 Survey


Project Description:

The majority of students have reported in anonymous surveys over the years healthy and responsible decisions with regard to sexual activity. However, when asked what they think is most common among their peers they report perceiving a much riskier environment. This research is examining the extent of these misperceptions and their impacton sexual risk taking.

Research on this topic has been conducted by independent study students and the AIDS/HIV Awareness Club at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
