HIV Conference 

Local HIV Conference Set

The conference--the first in the North Bay following the flurry of optimistic headlines reporting the supposedly miraculous results attained by some protease inhibitor users--will focus on new federal drug guidelines, procedures for treatment of multidiagnosed patients, the psychological and emotional impact of HIV treatments, and protocols for assisting patients to adhere to the complex treatments.

Dr. Paul Volberding, director of the AIDS Program at San Francisco General Hospital, will address the conference on new antiretroviral therapies. Dr. Neva Chauppette, a psychiatrist, will discuss the interaction among substance abuse, HIV, and mental illness.

The conference, to be held at the Luther Burbank Center for the Performing Arts, is being coordinated by the Sonoma County Academic Foundation for Excellence in Medicine. It is presented by Sutter Medical Center of Santa Rosa.

Registration is $80/general; $50/students (a limited number of scholarships are available).

For more information, call 527-6223.
