January 28, 2016

All are welcome to join us at CSSSI for a talk on Thursday, February 4 at 3:30 pm, by Dr. Gerald Friedland on the global epidemics of Tuberculosis and HIV, with a focus on the etiology and efforts to combat the disastrous convergence of HIV, TB, and drug resistant TB in South Africa. Dr. Friedland is Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology and Public Health at the Yale School of Medicine. He has been directly involved in clinical and epidemiologic research and care of people living with HIV, AIDS, and tuberculosis since 1981.

This talk is hosted in coordination with the opening of "The Africa Initiative at Yale: Research in the Sciences and Social Sciences" – the new media exhibition which will be on view at the Center for Science and Social Science Information (CSSSI, 219 Prospect Street) from February-October 2016. Refreshments will be served after the talk.
