The 2004 National Conference on African-Americans and AIDS -- "a national forum on HIV/AIDS for health professionals who provide care for African-Americans" -- will take place in Philadelphia, February 23 and 24, at the Wyndham Franklin Plaza Hotel.

This year for the first time the conference will have a separate track on advanced HIV management, separated from the basic track.
