Friday, September 1, 2017, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

During Empowerment 2017: Achieve Impossible, presenters and attendees we will be celebrating the victories of near impossible HIV transmission for those successfully on treatment and the achievement of productive, healthy, and empowered lives, once thought to be impossible for those living with HIV.  Empowerment is an annual day-long conference that provides the latest HIV treatment information to our community with a focus on guiding treatment decisions and empowering individuals to participate in making those decisions.  In addition to individuals living with HIV, the conference also provides education to service providers including health care providers, case managers, health educators, patient navigators, and other allied health and behavioral health professionals. The program includes a plenary session, catered lunch, and twelve breakout sessions.

This year’s conference sessions will include the following topics:

  • Treatment as prevention (TasP)
  • Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)
  • Healthcare navigation
  • Stigma in the South
  • Housing as healthcare
  • Healthcare policy and advocacy
  • Faith-based initiatives
  • Managing stress
  • Transgender healthcare
  • Telling your story
  • Treatment for undetectable HIV
