Who should attend and why? Anyone and everyone affected by HIV/AIDS in their lives, their work, and in their hearts, who want to voice their expertise, their experiences, and recommendations and have influence in the final document of the 2015 Ryan White Standards of Care for Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.
