In collaboration with Advocate, we'll be hosting an education event with award-winning playwright Emilio Williams:
Thursday, September 26
Since AIDS was first recognized in 1981, the syndrome has killed 30 million people around the globe. Another 35 million are infected with the HIV virus. Emilio Williams will share a sneak peek into an adventure that has taken him from Chicago to Timbuktu, from Barcelona to Lagos, and beyond, in a journey of discovery that will offer us a surprising update on one of the most complex and devastating pandemics in history.
