The Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) started yesterday here in Boston. This is the main HIV scientific conference. Follow the action on Twitter if you aren’t attending in person.
Kenneth Cole gave the keynote lecture and apparently joked about scientist/physician fashion, saying that problem “may be harder to cure than HIV.” (I wasn’t in attendance and learned about Mr. Cole’s address from texts/Twitter).
As a stereotypical frumpy physician, I do agree with Mr. Cole. Lets take off our white coats and get fashionable! And stop the global syndemic of TB/HIV.
Thanks so much for visiting my website! Writing and reading blog posts does take time and we all know that time is in short supply. You and I will both get much more out of this blog if it leads to dialogue. If you found my post useful and wouldn’t mind leaving a brief comment or sharing on social media, I would be grateful. Or if you’re shy about Tweeting but are willing to email me a comment that I can post anonymously or send an anonymous Surveymonkey, that would be great. My posts are generally written quickly, so if you find any factual or grammatical errors, please do let me know. Best regards, Philip Lederer
