Since coining the term "AIDS Survivor Syndrome" Let's Kick ASS' founder, Tez Anderson, as received hundreds of messages and emails from people who felt supported by the knowledge 1.) they were not crazy and 2.) not the only ones experiencing something they did not understand and couldn't name.

We’ve needed research data to confirm the existence and impact of AIDS Survivor Syndrome (ASS). Now we have it from Ron Stall Ph.D., M.P.H., Director of the Center for LGBT Health Research and Associate Chair for Science Dept. of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences at the Graduate School of Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh has conducted a study using the Multi-Center AIDS Cohort Study (MACS) data.

Dr. Stall presents his findings Research on the AIDS Survivor Syndrome: New data from the Multi-Center AIDS Cohort Study and Voices of Survivors Themselves. The town hall event is for both providers and community. In addition to Dr. Stall presenting his findings, we'll hear from HIV Long-Term Survivors some of those empowering messages. We'll also discuss next steps and what it will take to Kick ASS Survivor Syndrome.

The town hall is Friday, November 3, 2017, starting at noon. Doors open at 11:30 AM and lunch will be provided, courtesy of Nopo Pharmaceuticals, makers of Mytesi®, approved by the U.S. FDA for the symptomatic relief of noninfectious diarrhea in adults with HIV/AIDS on antiretroviral therapy.

Ron Stall Bio

Ron Stall is currently a Professor and Associate Chair for Science in the Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences in the Graduate School of Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh. Stalls HIV research began in 1984 when he started working with the AIDS Behavioral Research Project, one of the first longitudinal studies of AIDS risk-taking behaviors in the world. Since that time, he has published over 210 peer-reviewed scientific papers on many different aspects of the AIDS epidemic.

Recently, Ron has become interested in the combined effects of multiple psychosocial epidemics, or “syndemics” in driving HIV risk. His team is now working on a set of analyses to study how structural factors increase the prevalence of syndemic conditions among gay men, their relationship to the development of psychosocial health problems and how the study of syndemics might be used to inform HIV prevention efforts.

He is the 1999 recipient of the Chuck Frutchey Board of Directors Award from STOP AIDS/San Francisco, has been listed as one of the most highly cited behavioral science researchers in the world in the ISI Most Highly Cited website, received the 2005 CDC/ATSDR Honor Award for Public Health Epidemiology and Laboratory Research, was inducted into Delta Omega (a public health honor society) in 2006 and was awarded the Chancellor’s Distinguished Research Award for a Senior Scientist at the University of Pittsburgh in 2017.

Among his many gifts is putting scientific data into plain language makes it easier for everyone to understand and use health information. Plain language is a goal Let's Kick ASS also ascribes. We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Stall as he explains the findings on AIDS Survivor Syndrome.

Please share this information with anyone who might benefit. Providers are our target audience. That is anyone who works with, ministers to, treats, or provide services to Older Adults Living with HIV and those affected by the worst years of the epidemic.
