Dialogues in Depth: Inequities in AIDS Research and Health Care

Dialogues in Depth: Inequities in AIDS Research and Health Care

The AIDS crisis impacted every facet of American life. It caused social and intellectual upheaval, drove revolutionary advances in medicine, and brought to the fore stigmas and inequities around health and healthcare—issues we continue to struggle with today. Building upon the 2022 Anthony Mascioli Rainbow Dialogues, the Dialogues in Depth series explores the various ways the Rochester community has responded to the challenges presented by HIV/AIDS.

This panel discussion will foucs on the effect past and current funding inequities have has on AIDS research, service gaps in the health care delivery system, and the impact of Ryan White and the legislation named for him.

Panelists: Maria Dominguez, Joyce Rodriguez, and Paula Silverstrone.

Presented by the Local History & Genealogy Division, Shoulders to Stand On, and the Out Alliance in conjunction with Up Against the Wall: Art, Activism and the AIDS Poster, an exhibition at the Memorial Art Gallery, https://mag.rochester.edu/exhibitions/up-against-the-wall/.
