Renato (Rainier) M. Liboro, Jenna Despres, Brandon Ranuschio, Sherry Bell, and Lianne Barnes (all Psychology) of the CHAMPION Mental Health research lab, published their article, "Forging Resilience to HIV/AIDS: Personal Strengths of Middle-aged and Older Gay, Bisexual, and Other Men Who Have Sex With Men Living With HIV/AIDS," in the American Journal of Men's Health. 

This new open access, peer-reviewed journal article of their research team presents a distinct part of the findings and analysis of a large qualitative data set that highlights the perspectives and lived experiences of middle-aged and older men who have sex with men on resilience to HIV/AIDS. The article's discourse is derived from the unique viewpoint of older, racially and ethnically diverse, sexual minority male participants that discusses individual attributes they needed to muster and sustain in order to survive and thrive since receiving a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS.
