End AIDS 2015 Conference: Three Summits in One!

The End AIDS 2015 Conference is our newest and largest event. With over 65 workshops and more than 1,500 people expected to attend, the conference promises to offer something for everyone. The conference will combine our three signature summits, the HIV Prevention and Outreach Summit, the Prison Health Care and Reentry Summit, and the Faith Leaders and Community Summit, into one big event. Our hope is to bring the latest knowledge of HIV prevention and treatment tools to the wider community and to create more integrated outreach efforts in Philadelphia.

The featured speakers for the conference are Piper Kerman, prison reform activist and best-selling author of “Orange is the New Black;” Everett A. Gillison, Chief of Staff to Mayor Nutter and Deputy Mayor for Public Safety; and Julie (JD) Davids, Managing Editor of TheBody.com.
