Press Release

The Latino Commission on AIDS to Sponsor "Stronger Than HIV" in New York on November 15

October 13, 2006

Stronger Than HIV: A Free Community Forum
New York -- Nelson Vergel, a 23-year HIV survivor, international speaker and co-author of "Built to Survive" is visiting New York to provide a patient perspective and comprehensive overview of HIV treatments and side effect management. The free lecture will be held on November 15 at the LGBT Center in New York (208 West 13th Street) from 6-9 pm. A light dinner will be provided.

Nelson Vergel, a former chemical engineer and native of Venezuela, has given over 400 seminars in the past 12 years and is the founder of Program for Wellness Restoration (PoWeR), The Body Positive Wellness Clinic in Houston, a member of the AIDS Treatment Activists Coalition and the founder of pozhealth at yahoo.com, the largest HIV health discussion group in the internet. Nelson had failed all commercially available HIV medications in his 23 years of infection and only recently reached undetectable viral load and a dramatic increase in CD4 cells using new research medications. He wants to share his knowledge from a patient perspective to help all patients who have developed multi drug resistance.

"Nelson has been a strong activist who has advocated for faster new drug research and access for people failing HIV therapies," said Jeff Taylor, a national AIDS treatment activist and long term survivor. "He has a lot of practical knowledge about how to overcome HIV resistance and minimize side effects to live longer and better," added Taylor.

"We are happy to be able to sponsor this important seminar in New York City," said Carlos Maldonado, treatment education director at the Latino Commission on AIDS. "Nelson's lectures are always well attended in our community so we are ready to hear the new exciting news in the management of HIV," added Maldonado.
