Resilient, Fierce and Wise: The 12th Annual Women as the Face of AIDS Summit
May 8, 2017!
The 2017 Summit’s theme is “Resilient, Fierce and Wise,” and we are very excited about this year’s theme and the opportunities it will present as we look forward toward new challenges in healthcare, how we can amplify our individual voices through strategic collaborations, and our we are working on our efforts to End the Epidemic by 2020 in New York State.
As a community, we recognize that we are stronger together: when we communicate with each other, when we support each other, when we understand that individually none of us can ever be 100%, but collectively, we can be 1000%. This year’s summit will focus on how we can use our combined power: as women and as men, as activists and advocates, as front line social workers, as medical professionals and academics to refocus our energies and end this epidemic. The next four to eight years may present challenges that we haven’t seen since the 1980’s, and together, we can ensure that we’re pushing forward, advocating for ourselves.
