UMKC will assess AIDS testing efforts through black churches

The psychology department at the University of Missouri-Kansas City has received a $3.2 million federal grant to assess the effectiveness of HIV testing programs conducted through African-American churches.

The five-year grant from the National Institute of Mental Health will involve up to 14 Kansas City area African-American churches to see whether culturally and religiously tailored HIV education increases HIV testing rates.
