UF CARES presents 26th Annual Infectious Diseases and HIV Conference of Northeast Florida

This event will focus on the status of health disparities in HIV care, with a special emphasis on practical ways or pathways to break down barriers and assure better outcomes. Sessions will inform attendees about existent health disparities and will equip them with tools to combat barriers for reaching health equity in HIV care. We will tackle this from different areas affecting our HIV community, including HIV stigma, racial discrimination, mental health, criminality and domestic violence, policy barriers, and socio-economic factors, among others.

This will be a whole day symposium with 4 1-hour plenary sessions and 2 1-hour breakout sessions, with lunch and 2 short breaks. The presenters are community, state and National experts on these topics. The program will be held at the UF Health Jacksonville campus.

The target audience of our conferences include healthcare providers and workers (everybody that works in a healthcare setting). Community-based organizations as well as for profit and non-profit healthcare organizations in Jacksonville will be invited.

Light breakfast, lunch and snacks are included with in-person attendance.
