On Thursday morning Steven Deeks from the University of California at San Francisco will give a presentation on Aging and Inflammation, and on Saturday afternoon Myron Cohen from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will give a featured lecture entitled, "The Evolution of Antiretroviral Agents: From Survival to Prevention to Cure." Saturday will also include a symposium on Healthcare Reform and the Future of HIV Care.
