The Tulane University AIDS Education and Training Center and HIV experts from the Tulane University School of Medicine host a training at Amici Ristorante & Bar Saturday about the basics of HIV care for health care professionals. There are discussions of testing and prevention, the PrEP treatments which can help prevent HIV transmission, adolescent HIV, HIV and sexually transmitted infections and other topics designed to familiarize doctors, nurses and other healers with the evolving needs of people with HIV and AIDS.

A Q&A, lunch and a viewing of the Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day parade follows the panels.

It's free to attend for anyone who works in health care, but advance registration is required. Sign-in begins at 9 a.m.
