Realize and the CTN’s Clinical Care Management Core are pleased to present the 4th Canadian HIV and Aging Symposium — HIV and Aging WELL: WE Live & Learn Together — an exciting event held over 3 days in October. The Symposium will feature a diverse group of speakers and panelists discussing loneliness, future care, and support, and optimizing sexuality among other topics. Our esteemed keynote speaker, Dr. Giovanni Guaraldi, will open the symposium with a presentation on frailty, focusing on a proactive geriatric approach. Community respondents will discuss each topic and participate in panel discussions throughout the three days. The third day will engage participants in an interactive policy dialogue exploring ageism in the HIV/hepatitis C/sexually transmitted and blood borne infection (HIV/HCV/STBBI) response in Canada. Join us online and in person (in Calgary)! All events are free!
