Event Details

Join a stellar panel as we examine the past, present, and future of the AIDS epidemic. With the rate of HIV infection on the rise once more in New York, it’s a critical time to explore the past missteps and victories in the battle against HIV and AIDS. We’ll also look ahead to the future and evaluate the most promising opportunities for breakthroughs. The World Science Festival brings this esteemed ensemble of experts together to challenge one another, collaborate, and craft their shared vision of an AIDS-free future. The program also includes a special advance preview of the New-York Historical Society’s fascinating new exhibit, AIDS in New York: The First Five Years, which opens to the public June 7.
