HIV Innovations In Action

Hyatt Regency Cambridge – Friday, June 15th 2018 – 8:30AM to 5:00PM

Thank you for Attending

Thank you to all of our many conference attendees who participated in our very successful HIV Innovations In Action conference Friday June 15, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Cambridge.

We had a great turnout and want to extend a special thank you to all of our amazing speakers, partners, and attendees who made this day so meaningful by bringing your knowledge, stories, and thoughtful engagement to the event and beyond.

We are thrilled to have hosted the announcement by Dawn Fukuda, Director of Office of HIV/AIDS, that the Massachusetts Department of Public Health has received authorization to run a health promotion campaign across the state for gay and bi-men’s health.  The campaign coming soon entitled, ‘The Care That Fits You’ will be featured in print and digital formats, and we hope in the future will be advertised on online and mobile dating platforms.

This work of Getting To Zero is possible because of the persistent spirit and desire of our community to constantly challenge ourselves and think differently about how we approach the work to ensure we achieve zero HIV stigma, zero AIDS-related deaths, and zero new HIV Infections.

Our team is hard at work now sythesizing and analyzing the results of our note taking during our sixteen session workshops throughout the day, and we will share a post-event report soon.

If you attended the conference please take a few minutes to fill out our post-conference survey so we can learn from the experience of having hosted this event and collect your input to contribute to our report.
