Emory's Dr. James Curran Shares Insights from 25 Years of AIDS Research
Emory University's Health Sciences Humanities Program will host a presentation by James Curran, MD, MPH, on "HIV/AIDS in the United States: Lessons from the First 25 Years."

Dr. Curran is dean and professor of epidemiology at Emory's Rollins School of Public Health, and principal investigator and co-director of the Emory Center for AIDS Research (CFAR).

Before joining Emory's public health team in 1995, Dr. Curran was an epidemiologist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) where he was part of the original group of federal scientists who in 1981 investigated outbreaks of what was later identified as AIDS. Dr. Curran was on the frontlines of the virus discovery. His quarter-century work with the CDC and the Rollins School of Public Health has opened doors to HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment worldwide.

Wednesday, Jan. 30, 7-9 p.m.

White Hall, Room 110, Emory University campus Link to map & directions:

The presentation is free and open to the public. Caption for the hearing impaired will be available. For more information, call 404-727-5692.
