HIV/AIDS in America: Why the Struggle for Victory Continues

iROC - Investigating Research on Campus

Please be with us on MONDAY, February 29th at 12:00 P.M. when John Albarino, R.N. will present HIV/AIDS in America: Why the Struggle for Victory Continues.

Why are more than 56,000 people still infected with HIV each year in the United States? How did the AIDS epidemic spread from Africa to America? The answers to these questions will be addressed in Mr. Albarino’s presentation as well as an examination of the social, cultural and political forces that helped shape American attitudes toward the victims of our country’s first epidemic in almost a hundred years. The biology and treatment of HIV will also be discussed.

John Albarino, R.N. has worked as a nurse at SUNY Ulster Health Services and has also devoted his time to HIV/AIDS Services at the Community Health Center in Middletown. Mr. Albarino has taught courses on infectious disease and emergency nursing. He earned master’s degrees in education and counseling and also in management from the New Jersey Institute of Technology and Long Island University. Mr. Albarino holds a B.S. in community health from Mercy College and an A.A.S. in nursing from SUNY Orange. He has worked in medical missions in several countries and continents including Cambodia, India, Africa, South America and most recently Lebanon.

HIV/AIDS in America: Why the Struggle for Victory Continues will take place in the Dominican Center Café at 12:00p. Bring your lunch or pick up something at the DC Smart Market. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
