Dr. Michael Gottlieb, Co-Author of the First Report to Identify AIDS, to Speak in Long Beach
2012-03-28 · By Editor
On Thursday April 19, 2012 at the Parr Health Enhancement Center, Long Beach will have a rare opportunity to hear Dr. Gottlieb speak on the latest research around HIV and inflammation.
In 1981 Dr. Michael Gottlieb co-authored the first report of a handful of gay men in Los Angeles who were diagnosed with PCP pneumonia. Almost thirty-one years later much has happened to our understanding of the immune system and effective treatments for HIV. Newly diagnosed people can now expect long and healthy lives, but we still see signs of damage caused by on-going low levels of inflammation—even when someone is taking medication.
In conjunction with The Center-Long Beach, the C.A.R.E. Program, and the Long Beach Health Department, Monthly HIV Educational Forums take place at the Parr Health Enhancement Center on the campus of St. Mary Medical Center, 1055 Linden Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90813. Dr. Gottlieb’s presentation on HIV and inflammation will take place Thursday April 19, 2012 at 6:00 pm and dinner will be served. To RSVP for this event, contact Carlos Campa at (562) 570-4544 or Carlos.Campa@longbeach.gov.
