AN EVENT DESIGNED FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS IN HEALTHCARE, RESEARCH, POLICY, PROGRAM MANAGEMENT, ACTIVISM, AND ADVOCACY
tHANK YOU TO THE 120+ STUDENTS WHO JOINED HIV NEXT GEN!
What an inspiring and energizing workshop we had! It was so motivating to see over 120 passionate students mobilize to become the next generation of HIV leaders and change makers. The HIV Next Gen workshop took place parallel to the AIDS 2018 conference, from 22-24 July. As a three day program filled with exciting talks, activities and opportunities to experience "real world" scenarios, participants were inspired to make a difference through four central themes: advocacy, education, science, and fundraising. Will you join us next time?
