Joanne Despotes - How the AZT Study Changed My Life

Joanne Despotes will talk about how her work as the Nurse Coordinator for the AZT Research Project at UIC in 1986-87 kindled her passion for AIDS Research, Training and Education. This study that led to the approval of the first drug for the treatment of AIDS is now a footnote in a remarkable public health and medical treatment revolution. In 1986, AIDS was a death sentence. Thirty-four years later, HIV disease is preventable and if contracted, a manageable chronic illness.
