The International Workshop on HIV & Women and the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI 2023, celebrating its 30th year) took place back-to-back in February 2023 in Seattle, Washington. This was the first in-person gathering for both conferences since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and members of The Well Project's community were on hand (in some cases virtually). Read on for multiple authors' perspectives on these two fascinating – and distinct – research meetings.

"It is always a weird feeling when presenting at a conference or workshop. On one hand, I'm excited because of the opportunity to be among people who are passionate like me; and on the other hand, I have that good ole self-doubt that's screaming out at me saying 'Girl you do not belong.'" by KimberlyC (Kimberly Canady-Griffith)

Taking It All in From Home: My Virtual Experience at the International Workshop on HIV and Women 2023
"The conference was jam-packed with a lot of great presentations from discussing the impacts of global crises on women living with HIV, to the intersectionality of climate change and women's health outcomes. I found the connection fascinating and could understand how it works by their skillful presentation." by KatieAdsila (Katie Willingham)
