Special Seminar: Virtual Book Tour, Center for AIDS Research

Category : News/Events

Wednesday, June 28, 2023 | 12:00 -1:00 PM EST

We are delighted to welcome Kevin De Cock, Harold Jaffe, and Jim Curran for a virtual book tour to discuss their recent publication, Dispatches from the AIDS Pandemic: A Public Health Story. The book provides a unique firsthand account from these stalwart leaders of CDC’s early response to the AIDS Pandemic. Drawing in part on interviews from the CDC’s AIDS oral history project, they trace the evolution of AIDS from newly recognized disease to pandemic.

Two of the three stars of the June 28 event – Jim Curran (generous funder of the VDC through the Emory Center for AIDS Research) and Harold Jaffe (founding member of the VDC scientific advisory committee) — were instrumental in getting the VDC started 25 years ago this coming January, and the third – Kevin de Cock – was one of our early speakers (Dec, 2010: “Plan B: What to Do in the Absence of an AIDS Vaccine”).

All three of them have been involved in the AIDS pandemic even longer than I have (which is saying something, as my own HIV/AIDS career began in 1985) and they have a REALLY interesting story to tell.

RSVP for the Zoom Link here.

Webinar – Where the Sidewalk Ends: The Historical Impact of Population Health Disparities and Finding a Path Toward Equity

Category : News/Events

Note: This is a live webinar on June 21, 2023, from 12:00 pm-1:30 pm ET. Participants will use Zoom to join. 

Training Overview:

Health equity—the state in which everyone has the opportunity to be as healthy as possible—is a pressing need and identified priority that state and local health departments are currently trying to address with additional resources and efforts across the country. However, before we can implement effective tools for change, we must first understand the historical context and generational trauma that structural and systemic racism has created. This inequality causes unjust barriers to health, wealth, and resources and continues to plague many communities today with a direct impact on health. This webinar will discuss the practices and policies put in place to specifically disadvantage certain populations throughout history with a higher burden of disease, injury, and violence, and what the public health workforce can do today to improve opportunities for everyone to achieve optimal health.
