Event description
There is no cure for HIV/AIDS, but there is HOPE.

About this Event

There are many medicines available today that help lower the risk of infecting others. People who get early treatment can live with the disease for a long time.

Ryan White had hemophilia and contracted AIDS in 1984 following a transfusion from a "tainted blood product." Initially given six months to live, White died on April 8, 1990.

Join us and hear Ryan's mother, Jeanne White-Ginder, tell the story of her son, the stigmas that remain with HIV/AIDS, the need for testing and how she is still fighting for Ryan today.

Dinner will be provided by reservation only. The deadline to register is November 15.

This event will be held in the Cafeteria Conference Room in the main hospital building. Parking will be available in the Regional Outpatient Center parking lot and use the side entrance or you may park in the parking garage on East Wood Street. Look for directional signage in the main lobby. Please call 864-560-7507 if you have questions.

Sponsored by the Spartanburg Regional Foundation and Medical Group of the Carolinas - Infectious Disease.
