San Francisco Community Health Center, in partnership with PBS NOVA, Global Health Reporting Center, Ikana Health Action Lab, and HHMI Tangled Bank Studios is proud to host a free advance community screening of NOVA “Ending HIV in America” on Sunday September the 18th at 6pm at the iconic Castro Theater.
About the Film:
Almost 40 years after the discovery of HIV, could we be on the verge of ending the AIDS epidemic in America? As of 2019, in the US, there were only 34,000 new cases of the disease––a feat that once seemed near-impossible to achieve. How did scientists and the public health community tackle one of the most elusive deadly viruses to ever infect humans? Can innovative drugs bring new infections to zero? This is the story of an incredible scientific achievement and the public health work that still needs to be done to end HIV in America.
NOVA “Ending HIV in America” will be coming soon to PBS (check your local listings) and available for streaming at pbs.org/nova and via the PBS Video app.
After the screening, Ben Plumley, host of “A Shot In The Arm Podcast” will facilitate a live Q&A with the director and San Francisco community leaders that appear in the documentary.
Admission is free and all are welcome. For more information contact email@example.com or call (415) 646-1012.
COVID-19 vaccines, booster and masked are recommended.
