Saturday Plenary

Trauma Informed Care. Aging with HIV and the Trauma of Surviving

11:30 AM – 1:30 PM


Entertainment: Orlando Gay Men’s Chorus

The goal of this plenary is to make the case for trauma informed care for those living with HIV and trauma informed prevention for the populations at high risk of infection. We will reach our goal by focusing on HIV long-term survivors over 50 years old who are facing aging having gone through heavy grief, isolation, and post-traumatic stress disorder. There are many types of trauma associated to people of color that need to be identified and dealt with if we are to be successful in HIV care and biomedical prevention among communities of color.
