For many years, Network & Nosh event has been extremely popular and well-attended.

  • Understand the impact of HIV criminalization laws among communities of color, transgender individuals, and sex workers and its relationship to HIV prevention efforts.
  • Explore the relationship between race, cultural competence, and implicit bias in healthcare settings and beyond.
  • Identify best practices to enhance cultural competency, reduce and eliminate implicit bias, and promote racial justice.
  • Understand the epidemiological changes of the disease from the height of the epidemic, highly impacting white men, to now, as a disease affecting communities of color.
