This year's agenda included:

  • New HIV Treatment Data from CROI 2017 - David Hardy, MD, Senior Director of Evidence-based Practices, Whitman Walker Health
  • Women's Health Update: CROI 2017 - Katherine Michel, PhD, Georgetown University

The purpose of the event is to sustain efforts that began in 2009 to gather community members interested in HIV science and provide an opportunity for them to learn about and discuss the latest developments in HIV care, treatment, and prevention with local care providers, scientists and experts. The presentations will be made available on the CFAR website shortly.
