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.
