Hello Everybody –

At our next community meeting we will discuss the current research into a topic of great interest to us all: getting older with HIV.

Our meeting will be held this coming Tuesday, April 22ndat 5:30 PM in the ACTU Large Conference Room at Harborview (2 West Clinic, Desk B).

Many people think of HIV as a young person’s disease, but it’s not.

By 2015, half of all people with HIV will be 50 or older!

However, a number of age-related problems occur earlierin HIV+ people than in individuals without HIV.

This "accelerated aging" appears to be largely related to chronic inflammation and immune activation.

Join us next Tuesday evening if you want to know more about inflammation and immune activation, and learn about one of our studies which will answer whether aspirin could be a possible remedy for these conditions.

ABOUT THE MEETING:

As always, we will provide dinner for you.

We can also cover your parking at the HMC VIEW PARK garage. Just bring your parking ticket with you and we’ll give you a sticker or a pass that covers your time at the meeting.

We also have bus tickets available for those who’d like to use public transportation.

An RSVP to 206-744-3184 orby replying to this email will help me gauge food and seating needs, as well as if you need a bus ticket beforehand to get to the meeting.

Feel free to call or write me if you have any questions about this coming Tuesday, April 22nd (206-744-3184).
