My project investigated the natural history of acute and chronic wounds in the active injection drug user population. I visited Baltimore City Needle Exchange vans in West Baltimore and Downtown Baltimore. Using surveys, I analyzed behavioral and demographic factors associated with wounds in this population. Results from this study may inform future prevention programs and educational efforts.
