HIV and AIDS don’t go away–they’re a lifelong problem for those who contract it.  But what that means has changed a lot in the last decade and a half.

We’ll hear from Heather Hauck, director of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Infectious Disease and Environmental Health Administration, and Kelly Gebo, associate professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins University’s medical school.
