HIV And Aging, a discussion addressing a generational shift in HIV/AIDS culture, will be held March 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Alphawood Gallery, 2401 N. Halsted St., Chicago.
Jackie Boyd, long time aging specialist and LGBTQI advocate and Founder of The Care Plan, leads. With the continued advances in healthcare treatment and therapy, early detection, and preventative tests for seropositive individuals having grown sharply, life expectancy of HIV+ populations has created the possibility of senior years. How has this shifted our perspective on the history and future of HIV/AIDS? What are the long-term support systems that can be provided to these aging populations? What gains can be made where once there were only losses?
Windy City Gay Men's Chorus will perform.
