Half of those living with HIV in the U.W. will be over 50 by 2015.  Addressing the behavioral health needs of this population is critical to promote successful aging. Many older adults with HIV have the triple diagnoses of HIV, depression, and substance use, exacerbated by stigma, ageism, racism, poverty, and social isolation.

 
Students and professionals are encouraged to attend to meet local leaders in this field and learn about future directions in this emerging domain.
