Westat Employee Co-Produces HIV Documentary Featured at 2018 Vail Film Festival

Faces of PHACS features the experiences of 3 young adults growing up HIV positive, their goals for the future, and their hopes for the future of HIV research. This short documentary was shown at the 2018 Vail Film Festival in April.

The documentary’s participants are part of the Pediatric HIV/AIDS Cohort Study (PHACS). The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, which serves as the PHACS Data and Operations Center, produced the film, with collaboration from Megan Reznick, a Westat clinical research associate.

Westat supports Harvard in PHACS, a study funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). The study examines

  • Long-term safety of fetal and infant exposure to antiretroviral therapy (ART)/chemotherapy
  • Effects of perinatally acquired HIV infection in adolescents and young adults
