  • Describe the most current data on currently available, newly available, and investigational antiretroviral drugs and approaches
  • Detect, manage, and prevent common comorbidities occurring in the aging population of persons with HIV infection
  • Describe the impact of COVID-19 on HIV prevention and management including, trends in in-office vs virtual visits, antiretroviral therapy or PrEP continuation, and clinical care models
  • Describe the most common pharmacokinetic and pharmacology issues for HIV clinicians
  • Describe the impact of HIV stigma on unreached populations
