The panel, "Bridgebuilding: Community Spotlight on HIV Research in DC", will showcase the range of HIV research currently underway in Washington, DC, and the role that our community plays in this important work.

Toni Young with the Martin Delaney Collaboratory who will discuss the BELIEVE project; Dr. Kate Michel from Georgetown University who will discuss HIV and Women; Melissa Turner from the VA who will discuss the role of veterans in HIV research at the VAMC; and Marcia Ellis, DC CFAR CAB Chair, who will discuss community involvement in the DC CFAR. Presentations will be followed by an interactive discussion among session participants about HIV research and community partnerships.
