35th Anniversary Red Ribbon Cocktail Gala
Bruce Richman’s Remarks for APRI’s Red Ribbon Cocktail Gala
Unfortunately, Bruce Richman was unable to join us for our February 20th event due to illness. However, he recorded his remarks for us and we are thankful for his support of APRI and our anniversary. You can watch his remarks above.
Bruce is the founding executive director of the Prevention Access Campaign and the pivotal “Undetectable = Untransmittable” (U=U) campaign. He and the U=U campaign have received widespread media coverage, including in The Washington Post, CBS Evening News, China Global Television, CBC Canada National News, and The Lancet, among others. Bruce was named Plus magazine’s “#1 Most Amazing HIV + People of 2018,” and he was instrumental in getting prominent public health bodies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to sign on to the U=U campaign.
