We have made tremendous progress in treating HIV, but we still have an epidemic, with about 38,000 new HIV cases identified each year. Learn from expert faculty about how pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) can virtually eliminate HIV, who is eligible for PrEP, and how to monitor patients using PrEP. You will also hear stories from people in the LGBTQ community who are currently using PrEP.
