In other news, the 2014 HIV/STD Conference is off to a great start! We are pleased to announce a new conference partner, the Center for the Center for Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Research. Under the leadership of Professors Gregory Zimet and Dennis Fortenberry of the Department of Pediatrics, the Center for Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Research at IUPUI fosters cohesion and collaboration among investigators pursuing HPV-related research. This group of scholars represents a growing synergy between the disciplines of medicine, health marketing, psychology, and public health and capitalizes on IUPUI’s remarkable culture of collaborative and interdisciplinary research, establishing a world-class center for HPV research, research training, and research translation. We are excited to have them as a partner. We are also pleased to announce a few of the speakers and topics that we have confirmed for the 2014 conference:
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) – Toni Darville, MD
Pre-Conception Care HIV Infected Patients – Judy Levison, MD
Systemic Manifestations of Syphilis in HIV Patients – Charles Hicks, MD
Stigma – Joe Burrage, PhD, RN, FAAN

Stay tuned for more information about the conference and our move!
