Dr. Richard Crosby is an endowed professor of public health at the University of Kentucky (USA). He is senior research associate of the Kinsey Institute and an adjunct professor at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. He has garnered nearly twenty million dollars in grant funding, primarily from CDC and NIH. In 20 years of HIV prevention research his most recognized contribution to practice is the Focus on the Focus program – this is an Evidence-Based Intervention available through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As a scholar in research methodology and behavioral/social science theory (author/editor of seven textbooks), Crosby aspires to apply these tools to the development and testing of brief, clinic-based (and community-based) interventions designed for populations experiencing the greatest risk of HIV acquisition and transmission. Having published over 300 peer-reviewed journal articles pertaining to sexual risk and protective behaviors of high-risk men and women, Crosby’s work is widely known in the field of HIV prevention research. His passion is to orchestrate the widespread implementation of Focus On the Future and to develop similar, sex-positive, condom use promotion programs that can be delivered in conjunction with PrEP.
