Dr. Sabato joined UND in 2013. He has an extensive background in HIV/AIDS prevention education, having collaborated with entities such as the United States Department of Health Resources and Services Administration, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, and the South Carolina AIDS Training Network. He has assisted in the authorship of numerous prevention-based curricula, focusing on perinatal HIV transmission as well as risk behaviors of sexual minority youth.
Dr. Sabato's interest in global and minority health have led to his creation of "HIV/AIDS in a Diverse World: The Micronesian Perspective." This application-based immersion project on the island of Guam examines the impact of culture, language, and government on the spread of disease and infection, and has been a feature program of the Pacific Island Jurisdictions AIDS Action Group (PIJAAG).
