The New England AIDS Education and Training Center (NEAETC) and Outer Cape Health Services (OCHS)  are pleased to announce the Annual HIV Primary Care Conference to be held Friday, April 28 at the Provincetown Inn located at One Commercial Street.

Participants will have an opportunity to interact with expert NEAETC faculty and OCHS clinical staff, all highly experienced HIV providers in Massachusetts. The conference will take place from 8:30am-4:30pm, with topics including:

Advances in treatment have enabled most people to become stable and live with a chronic disease requiring monitoring that is similar to many chronic diseases managed by primary care providers.”
