Featured speakers represent some of the finest researchers and policy makers involved in the fight against AIDS, including U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Celia Maxwell, Director of the Women's Health Institute and Dr. Eric Goosby, Director of the Office of HIV/AIDS Policy of the Department of Health and Human Services.
