9:00 am - 12:00 pm in UW School of Medicine and Public Health, Health Sciences Learning Center 750 Highland Ave. Madison WI

With Jessica Terlikowski, Policy Coordinator, AIDS Foundation of Chicago

For better or worse, HIV/AIDS policy is often made by legislators who aren't really aware of the issues or don't have accurate information about them.  To get good policies, people concerned about and living with HIV/AIDS have a responsibility to advocate for our communities and educate ourlawmakers.

This session is a place to learn how to start.  Lesson one:" It's easier than you think."
