Physicians Needed for DSHS’ HIV Drug Resistance Testing Project

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is looking for physicians located in Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio, and the Rio Grande Valley who specialize in Infectious Disease, Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, and Obstetrics and Gynecology for a new project on HIV resistance testing in Texas. Project Conectate utilizes molecular HIV surveillance in collecting, reporting and analysis of HIV genetic sequences generated through HIV drug resistance testing to monitor clusters of HIV infections, improve access to testing and engagement in HIV medical care or Pre-Exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) services.

DSHS is looking to speak with physicians about tools and solutions that can support HIV drug resistance testing for their practice. If interested or for answers to any questions, please reach out to DSHS Public Health Director Uche Odunze at before October 31st to schedule a short phone call.
