AIDS Treatment and Related Conference Calendar (Starting September 2004)
September 15, 2004
Here is a short list of some important upcoming AIDS conferences this year (and a few that are most important to our readers in 2005 and 2006). For a much more extensive list of AIDS conferences, see www.thebody.com/cdc/newconfs/newconfs.html or www.cdcnpin.org/scripts/Locates/LocateConf.asp.
[Note: This list does not include meetings designed primarily as continuing medical education (CME) training for medical professionals -- some of which, like those of the AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETCs), we highly recommend. However, CME credits are available for many of the conferences below.]
