The 2022 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) CLINICAL CONFERENCE will be held in-person in San Diego, California, from Sunday, October 16, to Wednesday, October 19, as long as it is safe and practical to meet in-person. The RWHAP CLINICAL CONFERENCE will provide state-of-the-art updates on research, care, and treatment issues in the medical management of HIV infection for experienced HIV clinical decision makers.

The 2022 RWHAP CLINICAL CONFERENCE is planned with and supported by the HIV/AIDS Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HRSA) and is sponsored and organized by the International Antiviral Society-USA (IAS-USA). This conference is coordinated through the RWHAP AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC) clinician training network. A mix of lectures, case-based interactive presentations, and small-group workshop breakout sessions will be held during the 4 days of the 2022 RWHAP CLINICAL CONFERENCE.

Who Should Attend

Attendance is limited to 400 HIV physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants in Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP)-funded clinics and programs (specifically for in part A, B, C, and D). As we are not sure what the status of the COVID-19 pandemic will be in October, we are planning for distanced seating in the main meeting space. This will limit the number of attendees we can accommodate to ensure the health and safety of our attendees. The first 300 registrants will have access to seating in the main meeting room. The next 100 registrants will be in the overflow seating outside the main meeting room, but will still have access to breakout sessions and networking opportunities. At this point, given the limited attendance, in most cases there is a limit of 2 participants from each clinic, which can include 1 Registered Nurse and 1 Pharmacist.

The 2022 RWHAP CLINICAL CONFERENCE will offer limited number of registrations for RNs and PharmDs who are the primary clinical care decision makers in their RWHAP-funded clinics or programs.

There is no registration fee to attend.

The educational objectives for the 2022 RWHAP CLINICAL CONFERENCE are designed and developed based on the identified needs and knowledge gaps of the attendees.
