he science and social science related to HIV and AIDS continues to evolve.  As the “Why Us” Project was taking place, researchers made new discoveries about genetic variation and HIV/AIDS.  Though race is a social construct, racial groups were often established by geographic areas. Racial groups have long histories in diverse geographic areas that in turn made exposure to certain diseases more likely. Often this exposure and other geographic factors caused the development of genetic traits unique to specific racial groups.  The “Genetic Variation”video module introduces viewers to the scientists and their findings.
