Meet Cheryl Keenan
The dry erase board in Cheryl Keenan’s office at Brigham
and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts is filled
with lists of letters and numbers. Each combination
represents an HIV research study being conducted by
either industry or the AIDS Clinical Trials Group Network.
Keenan is the site’s sole research nurse. She manages
roughly 20 HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) clinical trials,
and the dry erase board helps her keep everything straight.
