The Pitt Men’s Study and the University of Pittsburgh honor World AIDS Day with this virtual service dedicated to those who lost their lives to HIV/AIDS. This program will also discuss living with HIV/AIDS during the COVID-19 pandemic and social justice movements including Black Lives Matter.
“The gay community is living with two pandemics, HIV and COVID-19,” said Dr. Charles Rinaldo, principal investigator of the Pitt Men’s Study and professor of infectious diseases and microbiology at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. “The men who participate in the Pitt Men’s Study are the heart of the program. The World AIDS Day event is a way to recognize the community that is helping in the fight against these pandemics.”
