Please join the UCSF-Gladstone Center for AIDS Research for an exciting one-day meeting on health disparities in HIV, Housing and Human Rights in the Bay Area. The goal of this meeting is to increase awareness and collaboration between public health departments, community-based researchers and implementers, and academic centers. This year’s meeting will take a deeper dive into the drivers of HIV health disparities within homeless populations.
