WANNA KNOW MORE ABOUT CURE?

defeatHIV and Treatment Action Group (TAG) are partnering–along with many international community advocacy groups–to bring to the public some of the international scientists and community advocates working towards the goal of curing HIV.

In Seattle for a major conference called CROI, the people at the forefront of this effort will share the research, concerns and conversations about the great challenges we face in eliminating HIV from the body.

Join us for this free and informative session from 9AM to 12PM on Sunday, March 3rd at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

    What a great city Seattle is. The snow up there was crazy a couple weeks ago! It’s nothing like the snow we have back home but I guess it really shut down the area. I hope you all are staying warm 🙂
