World AIDS Day 2019
On December 2, 2019, people from across NIH and the community will gather at Lipsett Amphitheater on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, for the OAR-sponsored World AIDS Day Symposium Community and NIH: In Partnership to End the HIV Epidemic. Speakers representing many of the communities touched by HIV will discuss how they—and the NIH—can work together to eradicate the disease. We are excited and honored to announce that NIH Director Francis Collins and Jeanne White-Ginder (mother of Ryan White) will be joining us during this important event.
