AIDS 2012 - Report from the 19th International AIDS Conference
Jennifer Tiffany, BCTR

Thursday, August 23, 2012
12:00-1:15pm
Beebe Hall - 2nd floor conference room


Jennifer Tiffany will present an informal report on major findings and initiatives from the 19th International AIDS Conference (held July 22-29, 2012 in Washington, D.C.) including treatment and prevention updates, new research on HIV and aging, youth activism, policies aimed at eliminating all perinatal transmission by 2015, and areas of hope and concern in the global epidemic. What does it mean to aspire to a generation free from AIDS? What will it take to get there? We willl also explore whether to host a "hub" conference, streaming in selected sessions from the global conference for local participants to view and discuss, during fall 2012.

Jennifer Tiffany serves as Director of Outreach and Community Engagement for the BCTR, as Associate Director of Cornell Cooperative Extension, and as Associate Director for Extension and Outreach in the College of Human Ecology. She's directed HIV risk reduction research and education projects at Cornell since 1989, and presented a paper at the International AIDS Conference on "Active Program Participation and HIV Risk Reduction among Urban Youth: Findings from the Complementary Strengths Research Partnership."

Bring your lunch and your questions! Beverages and dessert will be provided.
