David Ho Scheduled to Give Keynote Address

NMAC is very proud to announce that Dr. David Ho is scheduled to give one of the keynote addresses at USCA 2001. As many of you know, David D. Ho, M.D. has served as the scientific director and chief executive officer of the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center in New York City since 1990. Aaron Diamond is the world's largest independent AIDS research laboratory. In addition, he is a professor at The Rockefeller University, also located in New York City. Dr. Ho is considered a world leader in the field of HIV/AIDS research and has many important discoveries to his credit.

Dr. Ho was named Time magazine's "Man of the Year" in 1996 largely for his contribution to the understanding of the progression of the infection, the role of therapy in controlling the infection, and the concept of the eradication of the virus. Both of these concepts had immense international impact. They changed the way scientists looked at the HIV virus and created a new paradigm of AIDS care. We are very pleased and honored that he has agreed to participate again in USCA.
