40th Anniversary of the HIV Epidemic: The Past is Prologue

This is a past event.

Did you know, 40 years ago, the first CDC report on HIV-positive patients was release?

To reflect on this milestone, AMWA will be hosting a special session that focuses on the past as prologue. In this meeting, attendees can expect to be taken on a journey from the beginning stages of learning about HIV to its impact on society, four decades later.

First, Dr. Mike Saag will discuss his experience working in the field at the beginning of the epidemic. 

Next, Dr. Latesha Elopre will talk about her focus on the impact of the HIV epidemic on Black/African American communities.

Then, Dr. Ellen Eaton will discuss how lessons learned from HIV/AIDS can help us tackle the opioid epidemic.

To close, Dr. Saag will finish with commentary on how the epidemic helped teams through the COVID crisis.
