Imagining an HIV-Free Future
FREE ticketed event
Join us in observance of World AIDS Day as we unite cutting-edge research, the latest updates on HIV law and policy, and experts working in the local community to explore the complex issues surrounding HIV-AIDS — the pandemic of our time.
Hear from those working at the front lines to eliminate HIV in the District and ask them your questions. Talk with researchers working to end this disease. Learn what's being done to make an HIV-free future a reality, and how you can help.
