National HIV/AIDS & Aging Awareness Day
Webinar

September 14, 2012

By Deb LeBel , Partnerships Specialist, AIDS.gov

NATIONALHIV/AIDS AND AWARENESS DAY - SEPTEMBER 18, 2012 September 18, 2012 will mark the fifth annual observance of National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day (NHAAAD). This year's theme is "Aging is a part of life: HIV doesn't have to be!" The lead organization for the day is The AIDS Institute.

With this observance, The AIDS Institute and its partners nationwide work to reach people living with HIV/AIDS who are aging with the disease or already over 50 at the time of their initial diagnosis and grandparents who are primary guardians for children who have lost their parent(s) to HIV/AIDS. The day provides an opportunity to focus on the many issues facing the aging population with regards to HIV prevention, testing, care and treatment.

The AIDS Institute will host a "HIV/AIDS and Aging" webinar on September 18, 2012 from 1:00 PM (EST) -2:30 PM (EST). Michelle Scavnicky, Director of Education and Capacity Building Assistance Programs, told us that the session will include a call to action for HIV awareness, education and prevention for older adults. Webinar participants will hear about collaborations at the federal level to address HIV among older adults. The session will describe needs for research on older adults living with HIV. Speakers will include Dr. Timothy Harrison, Senior Policy Advisor, Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Stephen Karpiak,PhD, ACRIA Center on HIV & Aging, and NYU.
