The Fenway Institute and the National LGBT Health Education Center are excited to announce an upcoming educational conference for medical providers about the usage of on PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) for HIV prevention.
PrEP, also known by the brand name Truvada, is a once-daily HIV prevention pill with the potential to make a significant contribution to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic. You are invited to attend a continuing education conference focused on teaching providers how to incorporate PrEP into their clinical practice. The conference is for any providers – including primary care or other relevant providers – who are interested in becoming more knowledgeable about prescribing and monitoring PrEP. Attendants may have any level of experience with PrEP, ranging from those who have never prescribed PrEP before to those who have already started but would like to learn more about PrEP and its usage.
“PrEP has the potential to dramatically reduce the the number of new HIV infections, but only if individuals at highest risk for HIV infection have access to this intervention,” said Kevin Ard, MD, MPH, Medical Director for the National LGBT Health Education Center. “Participants will leave this conference with the knowledge and tools to incorporate PrEP into their clinical practices.”
Led by clinical, educational, and research experts in PrEP, the program will include:
- an overview of PrEP care
- in-depth case studies
- a panel of patients and outreach specialists providing their perspectives on PrEP
- a panel on billing and models of care.
Please note that this conference is specifically for the training of medical providers.
WHEN: Friday, April 1 from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM
WHERE: Fenway Health, Ansin Building, 1340 Boylston St. Boston
