first updates to the HIV DATF in 2015 (announcing new forums)

Welcome 2015 readers. We are back, and we have a couple of new forums (scroll down). We would like to find someone who would be interested in joining the HIV DATF Steering Committee as the web person. Duties would include maintaining the forums (posting and making sure no spammers post) and running the blog. If you are interested, please either contact Susan Forrest ( or come to our Steering Committee meeting today at 10am at BHS (6838 W Sunset Blvd. LA CA 90028). If you are interested in joining our Training Committee (we plan the CEU trainings for the year) please join us as well, or send Susan an email. All are welcome.

Please be sure to check the the community calendar regularly, to see what trainings are coming up. We also list conferences, meetings, & special events.


We have a couple of new forums, so please check them out. For a site map of the forums, please go here:
