#UequalsU:
Understanding Science Over Stigma
about HIV

Monday, August 13th
5:30pm – 7:30pm
Columbia Bank (formerly Pacific Continental)
101 E 6th Street, Suite 100
Vancouver, WA 98660

Please join us for an interactive and collaborative presentation exploring and Unpacking the often-confusing science behind HIV. What is a viral load? What does a CD4 count really mean? What is anti-retroviral therapy and how does it work? What does Undetectable mean? And how does this all really affect me?

At this installment of The Stigma Project, we will provide accurate and evidence-based information, while correcting common misconceptions and dispelling misinformation that often leads to confusion and increases shame and stigma. Join CAP and our special guest speakers for a catered dinner and an empowered evening of knowledge-sharing and community-building. We look forward to seeing you there!

All are welcome, especially those living with or affected by HIV.
