This yearʻs World AIDS Day December 1st is an opportunity to share the latest on treatment and the search for a vaccine and cure for the disease and dedicated researchers and students at the John A. Burns School of Medicine are embracing that opportunity.
Investigators with the Hawaiʻi Center for AIDS will present their latest findings on November 30, in a one-hour session which begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Medical Education Buildingʻs Room 315. Click to find out more on the Oʻahu World AIDS Day website or in UHMedNow Announcements.
The members of the Global Health and Rural Health medical student interest groups organized a colloquium to get the informational ball rolling about World’s AIDS Day. Their event in early November brought together anthropologists, social workers, community organizations, clinicians, patients and medical students. Speakers focused on overcoming barriers to control and treatment of HIV. The organizers hope to complement other planned events statewide in an annual occurrence.
