On-line CME Discusses HIV Prevention

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 On-line CME Discusses HIV Prevention. Today, HIV is no longer an automatic death sentence like it was 30 years ago but it remains an enormous burden of morbidity, mortality, and financial cost throughout the world. It can be controlled but it can’t be cured so our challenge is to prevent people from getting infected in the first place. On this CME webcast, we’re going to discuss HIV prevention and the steps that you can take in your own practice to keep your patients from getting HIV. Joining our moderator, Dr. Jim Allen, in the studio is infectious disease specialist and Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, Dr. Carlos Malvestutto.
