U=U’s Bruce Richman is speaking in Calgary

He’s spoken in Toronto, Montreal and Gananoque, Ontario. Now New York City’s Bruce Richman, the Executive Director of the Prevention Access Campaign, returns to Canada for two appearances at HIV Community Link (fomerly AIDS Calgary) on June 20. 

Most people who have seen Richman speak – I’ve presented three times with him - would I think agree that he’s a powerful and charismatic speaker with a message that packs a big emotional wallop.

Richman will be speaking first to clients at 10.00, June 20 upstairs at HIV Community Link,

Later the same day he will be speaking at the same agency’s  Annual General Meeting at the Kahanoff Conference Centre in downtown Calgary, 105 --12 Avenue SE, (one block East of the Hotel Arts) starting at 6pm.

Ian Chapman from Calgary, like Richman living with HIV, is enthusiastic. “The Undetectable = Untransmittable message that Bruce Richman presents is a massive turning point in the HIV epidemic. This is the most important advancement in treatment information since multi drug antiretroviral therapy became the standard of care in 1996" he said. "For HIV prevention, the introduction of "safer sex" campaigns in 1985 pales in significance to the science behind U=U.” 

Watch for other Bruce Richman Canadian appearances later this year.
