The State of HIV and Aging: National Teleconference May 28

In recognition of Older Americans Month, SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders), ACRIA (AIDS Community Research Initiative of America) and the Diverse Elders Coalition are co-sponsoring a national teleconference on Wednesday, May 28th, 2014, 2-3PM ET, on the issues facing older adults with HIV -- a rapidly growing demographic with distinct needs and pronounced disparities. It’s estimated that by 2015, one in two people with HIV in the U.S. will be 50 and older, many of whom are LGBT and people of color. The teleconference will include an update on the state of the AIDS epidemic among older people, as well as a discussion on policy opportunities that would improve the health and overall wellness of older people with HIV. Leaders from the aging, LGBT and HIV/AIDS fields will also discuss how providers can best support people with HIV as they age.

Time: 2:00-3:00 PM ET
