Mark Brennan-Ing, PhD, Director of ACRIA (AIDS Community Research Initiative of America) will present current data on adults with HIV, important because many older adults have often not been exposed to comprehensive sex education, and may not be aware of risks for HIV or other STIs.

Implications of these findings for sexual wellness and prevention programs will be explored through an interactive audience discussion.
