7th Annual AIDS Science Day at Yale April 22

The Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA) will host the 7th Annual AIDS Science Day on Friday, April 22 at the Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale, 155 Temple St.

CIRAaffiliated scientists from Yale, the Hispanic Health Council and The Institute for Community Research, will present their findings to scientific and community members. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required for lunch. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the latest research in HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care. It will also offer an opportunity to improve existing HIV/AIDS programs and to build coalitions to support improved services. Another goal is to increase collaboration between the community and the university. The event is sponsored by CIRA.

Events include panel presentations, a poster session, 18 community booths and a keynote address by George Ayala, director of the Institute for Gay Men's Health. Ayala's talk is titled "Holding Open Space: Retooling and ReImagining HIV Prevention Research for Gay and Bisexual Men."

Also on display throughout the conference will be a traveling photo exhibit titled "Giving Women Power Over AIDS," sponsored by the Global Campaign for Microbicides. The exhibit will travel to Philadelphia, Seattle, Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angles, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Chicago, Hartford, New York City and Boston.
