Canberra preview event for AIDS 2014

Melbourne is preparing to host an expected 14,000 delegates for AIDS 2014 (the 20th International AIDS Conference), which kicks off on July 20 and includes a star-studded list of presenters.

But for those who can’t make it down south for the jam-packed program, there is an opportunity to see some of the speakers here in Canberra.

The National Press Club will be hosting a preview event on Friday July 18.

Speakers include: Professor Francoise Barré-Sinousi, who received the 2008 Nobel laureate in Medicine for her role in discovering HIV; Lord Norman Fowler, who was Health Secretary in Margaret Thatcher’s government for six years and has authored a book on HIV and led major education campaigns; and Professor Sharon Lewin, a leading researcher and Local Co-Chair for AIDS 2014.

It looks like a great opportunity to hear from some of the leading voices on this critical issue. Bookings can be made on the National Press Club website.
