Medical professionals from around the country recently got an up close and personal look at how HIV and the precautionary PReP treatment impacts the LGBTQ+ community at the First Annual Southern LGBTQ Health Symposium sponsored by the Vanderbilt Programme for LGBTI Health.

Nashville CARES Chief Program Officer Patrick William Luther joined Kim Rivers, a primary care nurse with My House, and local HIV advocate Brady Dale Morris for a practical discussion about how the virus affects all communities and how preventative treatments such as the PReP drug can save lives.

The presentation took place in early March at Vanderbilt University Medical School. You can view the full discussion below:
