International AIDS Conference Day 5: Dr. Valdiserri Speaks With Regan Hofmann, the Editor-in-Chief of POZ Magazine

July 22, 2010

This article was cross-posted from the blog. Dr. Ron Valdiserri is Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health, Infectious Diseases, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Yesterday, during the International AIDS Conference, I sat down with Regan Hofmann the Editor-in-Chief of POZ Magazine. The magazine has been an important publication for people living with HIV/AIDS and their friends and families for over 15 years. It was a pleasure to speak with her and learn about the messages she will be taking back to her readers from the 2010 International AIDS Conference. I also enjoyed learning about how it felt for her to be invited to the White House and to attend the debut of the recent National HIV/AIDS Strategy. During our conversation, Regan also emphasized the importance of communities and government coming together to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
