While improved HIV medications have made longer, healthier lives for PWHIV (People With HIV) possible, the path to sustained good health is not always clear. An array of health concerns, compounded by HIV, can pose serious threats: heart and cardiovascular issues, cancers, cognitive and neurological problems, and joint and bone problems.

In this free seminar, learn about evolving health management changes reflecting a shift from toward multimorbidity management (managing several medical conditions at once), emerging information, and ways HIVers can improve their lives now to increase vitality and longevity.

A participatory Question & Answer session will follow the presentation
Light refreshments will be served
