On June 5, many in the HIV/AIDS community and beyond will stop to recognize the 30 years of AIDS, remember the first report of the cases of AIDS and look at where we have come in our response to the HIV epidemic.
In commemoration, on June 15 at 3pm ET, AIDS.gov will host a webinar/conference call for Federal staff and grantees working with domestic HIV/AIDS programs. This event will provide an update on the state and future of HIV/AIDS in the U.S. with some of the U.S. Government’s leading voices on HIV/AIDS. The conversation will include these leaders:
- Dr. Maggie Czarnogorski, VA
- Mr. David Vos, HUD
- Ms. Mayra Alvarez, HHS Office of Health Reform
- Mr. Jeffrey Crowley, White House Office of National AIDS Policy (invited)
- Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIH
- Dr. Jonathan Mermin, CDC
- Dr. Deborah Parham Hopson, HRSA
- Dr. Ronald Valdiserri, HHS Office of HIV/AIDS Policy
Register here by June 10.
We reviewed these considerations about webinars and webcasts in deciding to offer this event. AIDS.gov hopes this webinar/conference call will engage our target audience through an increasingly familiar tool that allows access across the country. We wanted to allow for dialog and encourage participants to ask questions. To submit questions in advance, please email contact@AIDS.gov. Learn more about the webinar here.
