Learning outcomes: attendees will leave with the knowledge that HIV is not AIDS (both from a biological perspective and a lived experience perspective), what living positively is, and that HIV is not a death sentence. The panel will stress the importance of knowing your status, knowing your resources, getting tested, and thinking outside the rainbow.<br /><br />Nashville CARES speakers will comprise the panel.</p> <p><a href="https://events.vanderbilt.edu/admin/anchorlink.vanderbilt.edu/images/W460xL600/0/noshadow/Event/ff4af31483f…  Read More...
