African-Americans and AIDS Conference, Philadelphia, Feb. 23-24
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.
Conference admission is $100 (which includes both days, continental breakfast, box lunches on both days, and the reception), through February 10. After February 10, or at the door, this price goes up to $135. If you want to stay at the hotel, special conference rates are available.
