Featured speaker Bruce Richman
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. We are honored to have this internationally recognized leader in the fight against HIV join us for this event.
The event will also have a silent auction with a variety of packages available. If your business would like to make a donation to the silent auction, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
