Webinar: National Conference Call PACHA Update - July 13, 2017

July 13, 2017
2:00 - 3:00 pm ET
via Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC)

Last month, six members of the President's Advisory Committee on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) resigned in protest of the Trump administration's lack of attention to national HIV/AIDS policy. The six included the editor of the Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (JANAC), Lucy Bradley-Springer, PhD, RN, ACRN, FAAN.

Join us for a discussion with Lucy and other PACHA members. Hear reasons why some choose to leave and others decided to stay. PACHA is chartered to provide input to the administration regarding programs, policies and research to promote effective treatment, prevention and cure of HIV disease and AIDS, including common co-morbidities of those infected with HIV. Discussions will include strategies moving forward and ways for nurses, other providers and advocates to protect the gains we have made in ending the HIV epidemic in the US.
