Given this growing population, it is essential that primary care providers are trained in how to manage the care of HIV-infected older adults. In this webinar, Dr. Jonathan Appelbaum, a geriatrician, HIV specialist, and medical educator guides participants through cases that illustrate the major treatment and screening issues related to HIV/AIDS care in older LGBT adults. Also on this program, Dr. Harvey Makadon discusses the most current epidemiology on HIV/AIDS in the U.S., as well as prevention with older LGBT adults. This webinar is the third in a three-part series on LGBT aging co-sponsored by the National LGBT Health Education Center and SAGE USA.
