The Pacific AIDS Education and Training Center housed in the University of California, Irvine, Division of Infectious Diseases will present the 33rd Annual HIV/AIDS on the Frontline Conference on September 16, 2020. The AIDS Education and Training Center is dedicated to enhancing providers’ knowledge, skills, and capacity to ultimately improve the quality of life for individuals infected with HIV and preventing HIV infection in those at risk.
The HIV/AIDS on the Frontline Conference is the premier regional conference serving Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, and Los Angeles County. This conference is the nation’s oldest annual conference focusing on HIV. This conference provides state-of-the-art information to enhance the care of HIV infected individuals and is usually held in-person at the University of California, Irvine campus.
Due to concerns with COVID-19, this year we will be holding an abbreviated virtual conference with multiple sessions. The faculty will be comprised of national, regional, and local experts. Topics that are critical in HIV diagnosis, management, and prevention will be presented. The content will include Antiviral Therapy, HIV Prevention, Co-morbid Conditions, Health Disparities and Barriers to Care, Mental Health and Substance Use.
The planning committee consists of the AIDS Education and Training Center faculty, Orange County Health Care Agency HIV leadership, and HIV Community Based Organizations. The committee membership represents different disciplines and diversity that reflect the attendees.
Attendees include HIV physicians, nurses, mid-level providers, case managers, outreach staff, testing counselors, laboratorians, mental health workers, and prevention specialists as well as primary care providers and other health professionals interested in learning the latest on HIV. Attendees generally come from the 4 county areas (Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles). As a virtual conference, this year we expect attendance from a wider region.
