“Left Behind: Ending AIDS in Black Communities in America”

Phill Wilson will talk about his work as Director of the Black AIDS Institute. Founded in May of 1999, the Black AIDS Institute is the only national HIV/AIDS think tank focused exclusively on Black people. The Institute’s Mission is to stop the AIDS pandemic in Black communities by engaging and mobilizing Black institutions and individuals in efforts to confront HIV. The Institute interprets public and private sector HIV policies, conducts trainings, offers technical assistance, disseminates information and provides advocacy mobilization from a uniquely and unapologetically Black point of view. Wilson’s talk will be entitled Left Behind: Ending AIDS in Black Communities in America. This event is co-sponsored by LGBTQ Initiatives in the Division for Inclusive Excellence.
