Gregory M. Rebchook, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Medicine, UCSF

Greg received his doctorate at the University of Colorado, Boulder in Sociocultural Psychology. He has been working in the HIV prevention field since 1987. In 1989 he worked as the Education Director at a local CBO (the Boulder County AIDS Project) where he implemented community-based HIV prevention efforts. Later he became the AIDS Coordinator at the Boulder County Health Department, and he held that position for five years.

He was part of the HIV Prevention Community Planning process in Colorado. He served as the Project Director in the most recent Mpowerment Project efficacy study. Greg was the Principal Investigator of a pilot study of MSM who use Internet chatrooms, and he was the Principal Investigator on a CDC multi-site, web-based behavioral surveillance project of MSM. Greg was also the Co-Principal Investigator on a community collaborative project to design and evaluate a structural, online HIV prevention program for MSM in California.  He has also been the Co-Principal Investigator on the studies to tailor and adapt the Mpowerment Project for young, Black MSM, and he is currently Co-Principal Investigator on the faith-based intervention study for young African American MSM.  After many years of single life, Greg is happily partnered and even had a commitment ceremony in June 2009, much to his amazement.
