Jennifer M. Cocohoba


Avid world traveler and donut consumer

Jennifer Cocohoba is a pharmacist for the Women's HIV Program at UCSF. She provides training and educates patients about their medications so they can better adhere to their regimens. She assists staff with questions about specific medications, selecting antiretrovirals (drugs that lower the risk of HIV transmission) and other drug therapies, and interpreting antiretroviral resistance tests.

In her research, Cocohoba examines how antiretrovirals are used and how they work in different populations. She also studies treatment disparities and is interested in designing interventions that would increase uptake of HIV antiretrovirals as well as patients' adherence to using them.

Cocohoba earned her doctor of pharmacy degree and completed a pharmacy practice residency at UCSF. She then completed a specialty residency in HIV/AIDS outpatient care at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center. She joined the UCSF faculty in 2003.
