Attention Case Managers: A Conference with You in
By: Vincent Lynch, MSW, Ph.D., Founder and Chair, The Annual National
Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS
On World AIDS Day 2015, as we consider this years theme of Getting
to Zero, please take the opportunity to read here about a four-day
annual national conference on psychosocial issues which may very well interest
you, your colleagues and possibly your clients.
The Annual National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS was founded by
me at Boston College in 1988 in response to the growing need expressed by
case managers, social workers, client advocates and mental health professionals
to develop a major annual conference where these psychosocial AIDS care providers
could network and learn from each other regarding new developments in the
psychological and social aspects of HIV/AIDS care. Now in its 28th year,
the conference moves around the country to a different city each year and
consistently draws 400-500 attendees. We typically offer over 100 presentations
Here are examples of just a few of the topics we address: new approaches
to case management service delivery, updates on ADAP policy/program issues,
other HIV policy issues including the changes in the Ryan White Program,
effective strategies for treatment adherence, advocacy skill building, self-care
for providers, techniques for interdisciplinary collaboration, improving
services to communities of color and current medical updates.
