The conference targets HIV medical and support service providers, clients and the community at large, offering education on issues related to HIV care, early detection, and treatment options.
“The Memphis Ryan White Program is confident that the information provided during these two days will continue to strengthen the network of medical and support services available to people living with HIV, as well as empower those living with and affected by HIV,” said Dorcas Young, program manager for the Ryan White Program.
“It is going to take the different segments of community partnering together to successfully address issues surrounding HIV. We are hopeful that these two days will energize us all around this goal.”
The setting will be the UTHSC Student-Alumni Center at 800 Madison Ave.
Here are the time frames: March 8: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; March 9: 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Conference registration is $35; on-site registration will be available. Scholarship opportunities will be offered for people living with HIV to cover the cost of attendance.
