This June marks the 25th year of the fight against HIV/AIDS, and that milestone is the focus of UNC’s 28th annual Minority Health Conference.
Titled “AIDS at 25: It’s Time to Deliver,” the daylong conference takes place Feb. 23 at the William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education. The UNC School of Public Health Minority Student Caucus is organizing the event.
The conference is designed to discuss current research, education and activism on behalf of minority communities. It features speakers and presenters who are involved in HIV/AIDS work, with the keynote lecture to be presented by Dr. David J. Malebranche of Emory University. His presentation, “AIDS at 25: Emerging from the Matrix,” also will be broadcast by c-band satellite and Internet at 2 p.m., with live call-in and e-mail discussion scheduled until 3:30 p.m. EST. (The conference is full, organizers note, and only Malebranche’s lecture will be broadcast.)
Details about this year’s conference and previous conferences in this series are available online.
