The National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS, founded in 1988, is an annual event that draws more than 500 HIV/AIDS-care social workers and service providers from across the country and nations abroad. The field of HIV/AIDS has dramatically changed from 1988 when HIV/AIDS was a death sentence to 2018 when individuals can live and thrive with HIV. We can see an end to the HIV epidemic in this generation! At our 30th National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS conference, we will focus on the role social workers play in ending HIV/AIDS through our work on the front lines. The Conference will look at the history of HIV as well as emerging topics such as the Undetectable = Untransmittable campaign, health disparities among various populations, and best practices for testing and engaging vulnerable people in care.
It is my honor to invite you to submit a presentation proposal for the 2018 Annual National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS, which will be held in Washington, DC! We expect nearly 100 presentations to be delivered that will focus on this year’s theme.
We need YOU, the best of the best, to share your research, best practices, and new interventions with others working in the HIV/AIDS field. First-time applicants are also encouraged to apply.
If you have questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Thank you in advance for your time, and we look forward to receiving strong proposals from each of you. See you in DC!
